St. Paul Alternate Education Outreach Program
St. Paul Education Regional Division has an outreach program, offered in both St. Paul and Elk Point. Our Outreach Programs are ideal for students who want to finish their high school education within a flexible learning environment. An Outreach program, in its time, was one meant for students that were at risk of leaving the educational system prior to completion. Today, after considerable advancement, outreach programs now include ANY STUDENT that is in need of a program that is flexible, accommodating and full of opportunity.
* Our unique programs are designed to meet the needs of each individual student.
