The Floyd Academy, launched in 2016, is an alternative education program to help students succeed in a non-traditional school setting and provide them with an innovative and enriching learning experience. The creative and inspiring staff members will instruct the students through the use of multiple instructional models to meet their individual needs. Each student will have an individualized graduation plan and will be prepared for the demands of the 21st century and for post-high school success.
With the motto, “Everyone Succeeds,” the Floyd Academy serves approximately 80 students in grades nine through 12. The goals of the Floyd Academy are to reduce the suspension rate, provide individualized support, and develop a safe and nurturing environment, foster positive and trusting relationships and further increase the overall graduation rate. The Floyd Academy is not punitive; students who have a desire to be successful and have faced challenges in their academic careers or lives may make a request to enroll; staff members may also make referrals.
Participation in the Floyd Academy is a privilege, and, due to overwhelming interest and limited capacity, there is a list of students waiting for acceptance. The program was designed to help students succeed. The district and community have shown overwhelming support for this program, and we look forward to working with the students to achieve their goals.

The Floyd Academy recently raised $300 in a “Movember” fundraiser, an effort designed to support and bring awareness to men’s physical and mental health issues. To reach this goal, students in Ms. Marie Martin’s Introduction to Cooking class baked gingerbread and mustache-shaped cookies for purchase. Additionally, students, through weekly lessons, learned about topics related to men’s health including suicide prevention, prostate and testicular cancers. They culminated this effort with a pickleball tournament!
