Linda Tutt High School

Journey Program

The Journey Program began in the fall of 2005 and is an alternative special education graduation program.  It serves students in grades 10-12 for whom the regular high school is not working out.  These are students who typically do not do well with traditional academic types of courses.  They need hands-on, real-world learning, and above all, need employability/vocational skills. 


Once students in this program reach approximately 16 credits, they can spend half a day working towards their high school diploma and half a day working at either a job on campus, or in competitive employment off campus. 

Our goal is to have 10th graders working on campus and have 11th and 12th graders work off campus.  In addition to core academic classes, we offer elective courses to students in this program focusing on career preparation/employability (Career Connections Course) and a hands-on building trades course.  There are typically 1-2 Journey classes on campus with up to 10 students in each class, 1 teacher, and 1 paraprofessional.
