Evening Campus and Quarterly Credit Recovery Information



Overview of Evening School

The Evening Campus is focused on providing students with the opportunity to learn, complete coursework, and recover credits required for high school graduation that is mindful of individual differences and learning styles.  Classes are offered each semester while grades are completed by four quarters. Attending Evening Campus will lead to a high school diploma that is readily accepted by the military, colleges, and employers. It is our mission to successfully prepare our students to transition to post secondary education and/or the workforce.  As a nontraditional setting, we empower students to be self confident life long learners who serve as active citizens enjoying in a reciprocal relationship with their community.

Evening Campus courses are offered at NFA Main.  The office is located in Suite 107a on the first floor.  Classes are held in CTE rooms as well as on the second floor of the West Wing. 

The Evening School design is based on these core principles:

  • 21st Century Skills: Students engage in all four “C’s” of 21st Century Learning: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.
  • Executive Functioning: Due to the elements of planning, teamwork, and time limits, students must utilize executive functioning skills to best participate and compete.

Character Building: Students must employ patience, persistence, teamwork, kindness, enthusiasm, and sportsmanship.
