Elevation Academy assist students graduate

GREEN COVE SPRINGS – Clay County District Schools has added another opportunity to serve students at risk as well as those who have had success in the traditional educational setting.

Elevation Academy, located at Bannerman Learning Center, was developed to serve as a district dropout prevention strategy.

Elevation Academy is now available to provide instructional programming through self-paced online courses to improve students’ academic achievement and increase credit acquisition. Elevation Academy will accommodate up to 60 students with continuous enrollment based on seat availability. This program will assist current Clay County students in this year’s graduating cohort who are three or more credits behind, have a GPA below 2.0 and are missing reading and/or math assessment requirements.

Elevation Academy will improve the post-secondary outcomes for individual students who need an alternative setting to meet the requirements for obtaining a high school diploma. On an ongoing basis, school leaders will work with the parents and students who meet the criteria for eligibility and collaboratively determine how Elevation Academy may assist in meeting their educational goals.

“While the district has increased the overall graduation rate, there are students who will benefit from this non-traditional environment that are at risk of dropping out and cannot be served by the district’s traditional programs. I am excited about the possibility of assisting our high schools and providing a sense of hope to students who have the desire to correct their path towards postsecondary readiness through Elevation Academy,” said Superintendent Addison Davis.
