Testimonials

Academically, my son benefited from this program because of the small environment and the positive teachers to help him perform during his suspension.  - Middle School Parent

I'm thankful there is a program in place to not only help my daughter but others to be successful in school by not falling behind academically because of a "bad choice" on her part. - High School Parent

Everyone working at A2S was very nice, accommodating, and helpful. This impacted my daughter in knowing that she is a good kid that made a poor choice and was not judged.  - Middle School Parent

I believe this is a very good program for kids who make mistakes that result in a suspension from school.  - High School Parent

Testimonials

My son had time to complete his work and he felt as if he was still in school. Keeping Up gave my son a great chance to stay on track with his school work. This is a very useful program. I would suggest Keeping Up for another parent if their child is suspended from school.  - Middle School Parent

My son felt better about himself and that he could go back to school and be a better student. His grades and his attitude improved as well. - Elementary School Parent

Keeping Up is a great opportunity for students to receive support and stay involved in school during a suspension. – Middle School Parent

This is a great program, and I am forever grateful for everyone who made this possible.  - Elementary School Parent

Testimonials

My daughter now realizes to stop making the same mistakes.  She benefited because she was in school doing her schoolwork rather than being home alone. – High School Parent

I’m glad my daughter had a place to go while I went to work rather than being home unsupervised.  - Middle School Parent
