The Evening Campus is focused on providing NFA 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 courses will lead to a high school diploma that is readily accepted by the military, colleges, and employers. It is our mission to successfully prepare NFA students to transition to post secondary education and/or the workforce. As a non-traditional setting, we empower students to be self confident life long learners who serve as active citizens enjoying 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. Second Semester classes started so if you are interested, please call Ms. Sethness, Evening Guidance Counselor at (845) 563-5569.
The Quarterly Recovery Program is another opportunity for individual students to improve academic achievement, increase a single quarterly course grade and to earn quarterly course credit. If you received a phone call or letter home in regards to qualifying for QCR, please see your cohort assistant principal and/or guidance counselor.
