 The staff at the Academy of Alternative Programs welcomes our students, parents, guardians, and the entire Long Branch community.  Together as a dedicated and engaged group, we make up the family oriented “Alternative Academy” where we “Lead by Example and “Children Matter Most”.  Each member of our school family possesses a valuable role in making our school a successful and rewarding place for all of our students.  We are committed to the:  “Continuous growth and achievement for all students without exception”.


Our students will receive the support and guidance they need to foster positive attitudes and build confidence in a variety of areas.  Such areas include:  their abilities to achieve and do their best within school, at home, on the job and within the community.  Our open door policy allows parents and guardians to visit our school and remain actively involved.  Our entire school family will become familiar with the policies and procedures established by our school district, with the purpose of facilitating quality academic focus, structured classroom management, responsible behaviors and school safety. 
  Our commitment to our District Mission will drive the culture and purpose of our school family.
