Regional Office Youth Alternative Learning Services

Safe Schools and Alternative Programs

The mission of ROYALS, Regional Office Youth Alternative Learning Services, is to guide students in achieving academic success and post-secondary success. ROYALS provide a safe environment in which high-quality education is delivered and high-quality learning takes place. Students understand that attending regularly, making quality academic progress and displaying positive behaviors are all part of school success. ROYALS staff serve as mentors in guiding students to make positive, meaningful choices that will impact their future in a favorable manner.

The vision of ROYALS is to assist students in achieving academic success and finding pathways to a successful future. ROYALS students will become productive members of the community.

Our Safe Schools and Alternative Programs are designed to meet the needs of individual learners. Safe School programs serve students who have been expelled or who have served multiple suspensions due to serious and/or repeated misconduct. Our Alternative programs are designed to serve students for a variety of purposes, credit recovery and chronic truancy, for example.

Our programs are offered throughout the Regional Office of Education #26 service area. Contact your home district regarding a referral to attend one our the learning sites.
