CAP Adult and Alternative Education Programs Available

Alternative Education Program – Provides daytime and evening classes for youth, 15 – 19 years old, who have not experienced success in a traditional high school setting.  We offer smaller classes, more individualized attention from staff, and computer-based instruction.  Classroom instruction is based on the Michigan Merit Curriculum and leads to a high school diploma.  Potterville High School students must obtain permission from the high school principal and/or counselor to enroll in the alternative education program.
