• Greetings Students, Parents, and Community:

    It is with immense excitement and anticipation that I welcome you to the Alfred Rush Academy for the 2021-2022 school year! 

    The Alfred Rush Academy is home to three programs designed to promote student growth socially, emotionally, and academically; the Flexible Learning Center, the Academy, and most recently, the Graduate Florence Academy (GFA). These programs are designed to serve students who need to get caught back up with their cohort, desire to graduate early, or need a flexible schedule.

    From the time of enrollment, every collaborative decision made is to promote student success inside and outside the classroom. These decisions are aligned to support a tailored plan for the student, designed to meet students’ needs such as past barriers to teaching and learning, academic-esteem, social-esteem, and related services that may have impacted or hindered the learning process. This framework for student success is the direct result of a collaborative effort between the student, parent(s)/guardian(s), school personnel, partners, and the community. 

    The faculty and staff at the Alfred Rush Academy are dynamic, reflective practitioners with growth mindsets to perfect their craft of teaching and learning. At the Alfred Rush Academy, we value each member of our community and seek to provide a rich, supportive, and joyful work and school environment. Our teachers can teach anywhere however, each teacher decided to join the Alfred Rush Academy family. Serving your son/daughter is the reason we decided to enter the teaching profession.

    Again, welcome to THE Alfred Rush Academy, home of the Phoenix!

    Mr. Christopher A. Coleman, M.Ed.

    Director/Principal
