The mission of ALPHA Academy is to provide a learning experience that is student centered, nurturing and supportive, academically comprehensive, educationally sensitive to the varied learning styles of all students, as they complete the requirements for their high school diploma.[3]

The structure of the program allows the students who attend to re-evaluate themselves and their goals through flexible scheduling, which lends itself to respect individual diversity thus creating a viable option for students who might otherwise drop out. This environment also allows students to be individually creative in their endeavors, while holding them accountable for their own learning experiences as they meet state standards.
