It is the mission of the Troy Community School staff to provide a strong educational and social foundation to graduate all students college and career ready. Our staff will do this by providing our students with a positive school experience that allows them to challenge themselves to be their best, while also helping them grow as individuals to be prepared for life after high school.
Our passion is building caring relationships that will allow for each student to grow intellectually and personally.
Our purpose is to teach our students that a “can do” mindset, effective effort, and perseverance are the key ingredients to providing a quality education.
Troy Community School, an Alternative Learning Experience.
This program is designed to meet the needs of students that learn best in a non-traditional setting. Students in this program are enrolled in grades 7-12 and are referred to us by Troy Middle School and Troy High School.
We intentionally keep our student enrollment to a maximum of 130 students in order to accommodate students who thrive in a smaller, more focused environment. Our team of staff work to create a learning environment that will help and support students become successful in completing their high school education.
We are Dedicated to Our Students
Our staff’s top priorities:
1. To Love Our Students Unconditionally:
Our staff believes that their unconditional love for the students makes an enormous, positive change in their lives each and every day.
2. To Press Our Students to aim for Academic Excellence; “Academic Press”:
Our staff believes that all students can learn and achieve at high levels by developing academic stamina and engaging students in academic rigor with differentiated instruction. Our staff believes every student is capable of learning and can persevere to achieve at their highest level.
3. To Teach Our Students about conflict resolution: To encourage our students to actively participate and mediate conflict, take ownership of our actions, and learn to navigate ourselves through unprecedented change. Research shows that not only does conflict mediation help our relationship with others, but it also helps with our own emotional regulation.

Always the Goal:

Who should attend this program?
Some students have needs (academic, attendance, social-emotional, behavioral) that are harder to identify and plan for in larger schools. We offer a variety of interventions and supports on a more personal level in a nontraditional setting. Students receive the necessary help, support, and guidance to enhance their learning. We respect that students are motivated in various ways to learn. Our goal is for students to become barrier breakers and obtain a high school diploma.
