The Southington Alternative Program serves students in grades 9-12 from Southington High School and surrounding districts on a tuition basis who have not been successful in a traditional high school setting.  Alta is housed in a separate facility but is directly linked to Southington High School and is part of the Southington Public Schools System. Alta is a "school of choice," and students are accepted only after they complete a two-day observation. Alta administration, in conjunction with the Southington High School administration, reserves the right not to accept a prospective candidate if it's determined that Alta would not best serve the educational needs of the student.

The instructional philosophy at Alta is based on challenging students to think independently, problem solve, write with purpose, and understand that literacy is a necessary skill to be successful in all facets of life. Our curriculum is aligned with Southington High School and stresses differentiated instruction and cooperative learning across all content areas. Alta offers grade level courses in English, math, social studies, science, art, music, life learning, and health and physical education. Alta offers school counseling and has full-time Special Education support. Alta is staffed by highly-qualified, highly-motivated teachers and has a full time Principal/Director on site.

Students who graduate from Alta receive a Southington High School diploma after meeting all district and state requirements. In 2015, thirteen seniors graduated and participated in commencement ceremonies.

Alta faculty and students consistently practice and model mutual respect, acceptance, and a true sense of pride. Alta is a unique, challenging, invigorating learning institution.

Please contact Jess Levin, Director, for questions regarding admission to Alta.
