ALPHA Alternative Education Program

If a man does not keep pace with his companion, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer/ Let him step to the music, which he hears, however measured or far away.
- Henry David Thoreau

Welcome to ALPHA

Administrator's Message: Welcome to the ALPHA Program web site. As you explore this site, we hope to provide you with a better understanding of the learning opportunities offered in the Alternative High School Program. While ALPHA is an alternative to the traditional high school experience, students attending ALPHA must meet the same graduation requirements as all the students in the Stratford School System. The staff members of the ALPHA Program are a dedicated group of individuals who have requested an opportunity to work with a student population that has elected to attend our program.

We welcome you to explore this site and learn about what ALPHA has to offer the students of Stratford. Please feel free to call with questions about our program or to arrange a visit.

ALPHA Mission Statement: The Stratford Public School System recognizes that all students have the innate capability to learn. The ALPHA program provides students with the opportunity to foster their innate capabilities and experience their successes in a smaller educational environment with a truly dedicated staff. Our mission at ALPHA is to present the opportunity and support so all students, in partnership with families and community, will acquire life-long learning skills. The skills learned (academic and social) are necessary in becoming responsible, contributing citizens in a diverse and ever-changing global society.
