Alternative Academic Pathways
True North K12 exists for any student K-12 needing instruction while on leave from school. Our mission is to provide a in-person learning program that is comprehensive yet uncomplicated. The goal is for our students to rejoin their home school district and/or find another suitable place or pathway for their education.
True North teachers are highly qualified, passionate and enthusiastic about helping students manage academics so that students may concentrate on healing and growing.
The student to teacher ratio is a maximum of 5:1. One to one mentoring is also available.
We offer a comprehensive NYS curriculum via Imagine Edgenuity asynchronous coursework along with the aid of highly qualified teachers and mentors. Students may also follow the home district courses or homeschool curriculum. All students will have the opportunity to learn at their own pace.
True North exists for any student in grades Kindergarten through 12th needing respite and/or a temporary alternative to traditional Public or Private school. Typically, the students who attend our program are on long term leave from school. This program replaces the NYS mandated 10 hours of tutoring per week granted to students on long-term leave or suspension from school and offers 20 hours of comprehensive instruction per week. Students attend school at our facility. Each student is paired with a mentor. True North also accommodates homeschooled students needing a more structured, in-person, academic program.
In many circumstances and with proper documentation, the K-12 home school district will pay for the cost of tuition and registration. In the event a school district is not able to absorb this cost, parents/guardians may pay out of pocket. To inquire about the cost of tuition please click on Contact Us. True North only accepts payment by personal or certified check and does not accept credit cards. Please also inquire about scholarships.
