We will assist approximately 50 or more students during a calendar year, as well as during summer school. School policy permits admission at any time; past experience indicates a tendency for new student applications at each report card grading period. West End Academy students who develop satisfactory study skills and are successful with grades may be encouraged to return to their former school. Therefore, enrollment can fluctuate during the year since students can enter or leave at any given time. More than half our students spend the balance of their high school career with us, usually having entered in the ninth grade. Nearly 80% of our graduates have plans to go on to further their education and become contributing members of society. For these young people, a diploma gives them a start on becoming responsible young adults.
