Alternative Education

Alternative Education Program at Hoffmans Crossing
The Alternative program at Hoffmans Crossing provides an out of district option for non-classified students. The smaller setting and alternate location offers a fresh start to students motivated to turn their educational experience around. The curriculum covers all core content curriculum standards. The innovative, thematic approach engages students who previously found school less than stimulating. Lessons are delivered in a manner that encourages all students to become active learners.

Students are provided an outdoor educational experience that integrates NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards into their academic classes. The goal is to develop self-sufficient individuals who are better able to function in both the local and global community. The classroom extends beyond the building to include the local YMCA, hiking trails, museums, libraries and any other community resources relevant to the lesson being studied.
