Atlantic County Alternative High School

Hello and welcome to the Atlantic County Alternative High School (ACAHS) website!  The Atlantic County Alternative High School (ACAHS) has been working with at-risk student populations for many years.  

The ACAHS offers a supportive, non-traditional effective learning environment for at-risk students (students considered at-risk for academic failure, and or dropping out of school) by providing for flexible educational objectives that take into consideration the learning styles and individual needs of our students.  Although flexible in our approach, the academic setting and curriculum of the ACAHS, addresses all of the New Jersey Core Content Standards as well as individual high school graduation requirements.  

The ACAHS offers a blended learning approach to educate the whole child, small class sizes, highly qualified teachers, as well as individualized services for students and their families.  The ACAHS provides a caring and supportive environment where rules and regulations are clearly defined and fairly and consistently enforced.  

The ACAHS accepts students from the following sending districts:  Atlantic City, Buena Regional, Egg Harbor Township and Pleasantville.  Our mission is to prepare and motivate students to pursue entry into the world of work, military or professional programs, and also provide opportunities for students to continue to further their education post high school graduation.  

Please take the time to explore our website, which provides you with useful and helpful information, as well as many community and school resources for both students and parents.

I look forward to getting to know you and your student this year.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your student's educational program or are interested in volunteering, please contact me at 625-2249 X6100.

Dr. Janene Askins
