What is the Alternative Program?

The Alternative High School Program is an option of all High Schools in Salem County. This Alternative program is located at the John Campbell Center in Salem, NJ and serves high school students in grades 9-12. The program is unique because it provides a small, nurturing, and supportive alternative for students who have not been consistently successful in larger educational settings. The Alternative program is academically challenging and provides courses needed to obtain a High School Diploma

General Statement

High Schools in Salem County are experiencing a growing number of school-aged youth that present academic, attendance, and behavior problems. The dilemma is that these students are not successful in their home schools. Their personal and academic needs are not or can not be met through traditional school programs and settings It follows then, that if these students are to be helped, an alternative, non-traditional approach is needed.

General Statement

The Alternative Middle School has two purposes. First, to provide a short-term interim school placement for discipline or other reasons. The program offers services in a safe, structured environment where students are expected to grow socially, emotionally, and academically to be better equipped to participate and succeed in their home school. The second purpose is to provide a long term placement that will provide an emotionally and physically safe environment for disaffected and at-risk middle school students while they work to catch up academically so that they can transition back to their home high school.

Academic Component

The Middle School Alternative Program offers credit for language arts, social studies, math, science, health/physical education, and life skills. In the mornings the program will focus on counseling, language arts, and math. In the afternoons the focus will be on science and social studies. Math and language arts will consist of two forty-five minute periods. One period will be dedicated to group lessons on skills related to the NJASK and GEPA and the next period will emphasize individual work sent by the home district. New Jersey Core Content Curriculum Standards will be utilized and modified as needed. Grades are issued at typical times and students are tested with required state and district tests.
