Regional Alternative School

For Grades 8 – 12

The Regional Alternative School Community is a nurturing and safe place where students make a fresh start in a small school. We support the academic and personal growth of young people with the hope that they become willing and able contributors to their communities. Our community values communication, camaraderie, compassion, commitment and courage.

Many of our students also participate in NYS approved CTE programs at the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Center. Middle and high school students work toward a Regents Diploma. They sit for all of the appropriate New York State Education Department tests. Credits and diplomas are awarded by the home school district. RAS graduates attend community colleges, technical schools or four-year colleges. Others enter the military or the workforce.


This is a half-day program providing students with instruction needed to pass the TASC exam. It is available in the AM or the PM, and is open to students ages 16 and older. Many students additionally enroll in a Career and Technical Education program for the other half of the academic day (billed separately).
