    North Cook Young Adult Academy (NCYAA) educates students in one of two distinct programs:

      RSSP serves students from Grades 6-12 who have had multiple suspensions or are pending expulsion from their home school.

      ALOP offers flexible educational programs and services to meet the complex needs of students. The objective is to offer additional tiered support that follows a school's continuum of services in an environment that is more flexible and adaptable for the students.

    NCYAA is dedicated to providing a positive, safe, and inclusive learning environment for all students. Goals of both programs include increasing graduation rates, increasing student attendance & participation, increasing credit attainment, improving family engagement, increasing job-related skills, and improving copy strategies.

    Both the RSSP and the ALOP are regular education programs that follow a comprehensive curriculum similar to the home school district, with differentiated instruction that is centered around a student’s individual differences and learning styles. Social-emotional growth is an important aspect of each program. Class sizes do not exceed 10 students in most cases. NCYAA also provides resources and services, such as planning and goal-setting, counseling, job-related services, and social-emotional learning, along with individual and group support. We offer a team approach in our programs. There is regular, ongoing communication between NCYAA staff, parents/guardians, the student, and the home school.

    All credits earned by students at NCYAA are transferred to their home school district. More than 80% of students sent to NCYAA successfully transition back to their home school or graduate. North Cook Young Adult Academy empowers students to develop respect and responsibility for themselves and their communities. A focus of each program is for students to become lifelong learners and active contributors to their community.
