In-Person at Molalla High School
The Molalla Academy program is housed in the Molalla High School building and has a large, self contained classroom. This program offers students a standard Oregon diploma through a combination of direct instruction of integrated curriculum and independent work.
Students are able to earn more credit than the average student through their own dedication and persistence. In our small environment, students receive one-on-one academic support and mentoring with our staff. We provide two sessions, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Monday thru Friday. Referrals are done through the school districts.
Students also have the opportunity to be involved in exciting projects such as the community garden located on campus, and activities located off-campus. In this manner students not only have the opportunity to quickly recover missing credit, but have the opportunity to use their creative skills to become involved in outside, off-campus activities that greatly enhance their learning. Some community partners that we have worked with over the years have included Hopkins Demonstration Forest, Wolftree, and Oregon State University’s GROW Healthy Kids program.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to play an active role in their youth’s education at all of our OOI schools. By helping them to attend class regularly, be on time, and make a serious effort to study, parents can help students succeed in their daily work. Encouragement from parents/guardians, advocates, mentors, teachers, and counselors help students overcome many problems they may face.
Parents/guardians are urged to confer with advocates, teachers, or counselors at any time about their student’s progress. In order for the student to enroll, a parent/guardian must attend the enrollment/complete paperwork with their student and attend conferences as necessary.
