York River Academy is a school where everyone gets a diploma, even if it means having to stay after school because you failed an assignment. This gives everyone the opportunity to succeed.
What makes the school special is that you can earn certifications, and that there are only 70 students. People think this is a school for kids who flunk regular public schools. While this is true for some, many people come because of the small atmosphere. If a fight happens, everyone will know by the end of the day.
