There is a growing national movement of alternative high schools that are intentionally designed to serve students who are off-track to graduation. These schools, grounded in positive youth development, work to re-engage students who have been failed by the system. An alternative school graduate will join two school leaders to explore the ways in which these schools set up over-age, under-credited students to graduate prepared for success in college and career.
