A better alternative in education
In 1994, Blueprint Education partnered with school districts in the greater Phoenix area, and sparked a movement for innovative alternative education in Arizona. Our Alternative Education Program now serves 20 districts, 60 schools, and hundreds of children in grades 3 to 8.
Located at 1801 South 12th Street (in the former Ann Ott Elementary School)
Based on the Kids at Hope belief system, our academies employ innovative teaching and learning techniques to inspire, empower and transform students, families and communities.
Blueprint Alternative Education Program provides a structured environment with firm standards; a behavior modification program with goal setting, checks and balances, and recognition; a basic curriculum that moves education forward; and a belief system that all children are capable of success—no exceptions.
Geared for student possibilities.
Our Alternative Education Program gives hope to students at risk of tuning out or giving up. We offer an elementary school model for 3th to 8th graders that provides an off campus placement setting so students aren't distracted by their original environment.
For the student, our Alternative Education Program provides an added opportunity for success in school. Our smaller class size with flexible instruction and learning level options can be individualized for each student's level of learning.
We also create avenues for an anchor parent or caring adult to follow and support a student’s education. A parent study component shows parents how to plan structure, share responsibility at home, and become more involved in school-related activities.
Giving Hope to school districts.
Our Alternative Education Program allows school districts to join in a cooperative ownership for quality alternative education. We establish a contract with each student for goal setting and subject completion, then plan and check timelines, study and evaluative sessions weekly. We also send monthly progress reports to student, parent and school, so everyone stays on the same page.
Our Alternative Education Program offers an option to full expulsion, help separate the student from negative influences, and enforce attendance requirements, dress codes and behavior standards.
