The purpose of Swift Creek High School is to provide an alternative setting and instructional approach for students who have not found success in a traditional setting. As a school of choice, any student has the option to apply for admission, and no student can be forced to apply or attend. Smaller class sizes, personalized instruction, and relationships in a family atmosphere are the hallmarks of the Swift Creek High School community that rekindle a student’s desire and passion to learn.
The staff at Swift Creek High School believe that every person should be treated with dignity and respect. Our programming is designed to empower students to own their educational experiences. At SCHS, students are never forced or coerced, rather they are given choices and taught the skills to be successful. We guide every student to accept responsibility for their individual actions with relentless consistency, and we teach students to critically evaluate his/her life choices and how they impact his/her life goals. We have found that many students enter SCHS with a history of negative encounters at school and unfortunate life events that have interfered with their success. As a result, staff members at SCHS make a conscious effort to provide a consistent, productive, challenging, supportive, and caring atmosphere.
