This program is designed to give youth ages 17 to 21 years old the opportunity to earn their high school diploma. Along with academic classes students must participate in construction training, nursing training, or a worksite internship every other week. Students are also required to participate in Mental Toughness.
The Crispus Attucks YouthBuild Charter School has successfully aligned our curriculum with the Pennsylvania Student State Standards and benchmarks. We were recognized by YouthBuild USA, our national parent organization, for our outstanding program. Each educator has a copy of the PA Student State Standards and benchmarks located in their classroom. The students who enter our program have committed themselves to positive change. They recite our mission statement every morning, with its focus on accepting responsibility and respectable leadership. The school’s aim is to help the student earn a high school education, develop employability skills, provide skills training and ultimately put them in a position to secure gainful employment. This is done by having a state certified curriculum, and a teaching staff that meets the requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Education. There is a Mental Toughness component that focuses primarily upon self-discipline and positive self-image.
Our constant endeavor to keep that mission alive and growing is established in the following areas and strengths:
-Maintain a safe, encouraging, supportive learning environment.
-Provide individualized pupil-centered education.
-Teach students how become effective, successful learners.
-Motivate and educate students to realize and achieve their highest intellectual potential.
-Instill the relevance of education for personal and professional success.
-Help former high school dropouts earn a high school diploma by meeting YouthBuild competencies and PDE standards.
-Encourage students to pursue post high school education in college, technical, business, or trade schools.
We look forward to another great year serving the youth of our community.
