Discovering Choices offers a flexible schedule and students engage in personalized self- paced learning. The environment is student centered yet adult learning oriented and requires independence and self-motivation to meet success.

Discovering Choices offers a limited selection of complimentary classes and extra-curricular activities. For students looking for a broader selection, or specific opportunities, it is important to experience a traditional high school environment. 

Once the transfer request has been submitted to the designated high school, please contact the appropriate Discovering Choices site. We have four locations throughout the city:
