  • To create a safe, caring, respectful environment for learning in which students acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to succeed in life and in work.


  • The Center for Alternative Programs (CAP) is an educational community where all students are able to learn and thrive regardless of previous school history and personal barriers. CAP supports the Potterville High School's (PHS) vision while recognizing the value of existing as a separate entity. CAP's unique quality is its commitment to growing and developing in directions where staff are able to think outside of the box for solutions to problems.

    Our goal is to ensure that each student is able to achieve the Michigan Merit Curriculum benchmarks. We reach this goal by being data-driven, diversifying our instruction and implementing a variety of best practices which incorporate multiple intelligences and diverse learning styles.

    Our teaching staff is composed of caring and qualified professionals who desire and expect students to learn and to acquire positive behaviors and social skills. All staff are active participants in our professional learning community and are committed to professional growth and school improvement.

    Our school facilities and instructional materials and resources are adequate to meet the needs of our students with CAP students accessing and utilizing District programs as appropriate. All stakeholders have a voice within our school.

    By capitalizing on the strengths of each individual student and staff member, we are able to create a school in which students gain the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve success in their pursuit of further education, a meaningful career, productive citizenship and satisfying relationships.
