Wright City Academy provides online alternative education and credit recovery programs for at-risk high school students attending Wright City High School. Alternative education students transfer into the Academy when they need extra assistance. When they are back on track, they return to the regular high school. In addition to the alternative education program, students can participate in a credit recovery program, offered after school during the school year and during summer school.
FuelEd provides the original credit courses, the credit recovery courses, and the teachers - certified in the state of Missouri - for those credit recovery courses. Most Academy alternative education students take FuelEd original credit courses, while a few take FuelEd credit recovery courses. The two Academy teachers manage the two computer labs and personalize the instruction to each student’s prior experiences, current situation, and future goals. Wright City Academy is turning frustrated and unsuccessful students into motivated learners, who take pride in their work and aspire to earn their high school diploma.
