North Education Center Academy (NECA)
NECA is one of four ALC programs within District 287. NECA offers a smaller, more personalized setting which differs from a traditional high school setting. Our program is designed to serve students from 9 - 12 grade plus. To enroll in this program, students must qualify under the Graduation Incentives Program. Our hope is to give students an opportunity to growth academically, social and emotionally, to prepare them to be productive citizens in the 21st century.
Part of academic and behavior support that NECA offers are:
- Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) - This program is designed to emphasize college readiness skills for students.
- Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) - This program teaches students the expectations that they should exhibit in schools and rewards positive behavior through acknowledging students in a variety of ways individually, as well as within the whole school.
- Early Learning Center (ELC) - This program provides early education to infants, toddlers and preschool children.
