About The Academy

The Academy, Regional Safe School Program, is an alternative program for 7-12th graders located in the garden (lower) level of the Quincy Public School Board of Education Building, 1416 Maine Street, Quincy.  Partial funding for this program is provided through the Regional Safe Schools Grant. All students must be referred by their homeschool, meet specific guidelines, and complete an Alternative Education Plan (AEP) prior to enrollment.

The Academy utilizes a block schedule and offers a mandatory SEL curriculum and full range of academic course work including electives through teacher led and online Edgenuity course work.  Our block approach helps promote success by allowing students to focus on 4 subject areas at a time as opposed to six or seven. It may also help them attain graduation credits at an accelerated rate.  Ultimately, our goal is to transition students back to the individual homeschool. The Academy has clear and consistent behavior expectations and appropriate behavior interventions that must be followed to ensure a positive school climate for all.
