Alternative Education
The Madera County Office of Education operates educational programs at Discovery Secondary School, Challenger, Apollo,  Enterprise Intermediate and Secondary School, Endeavor Secondary School, and Voyager Secondary School.  These programs are designed for students who are under court supervision or who are not attending school for a variety of reasons.

The court and community schools provide education programs for students from grades 7 to 12. The two elementary community day schools provide education programs for students from grades 4-6.  Court schools are mandatory and serve students who have been referred by the Probation Department or school district because they are at high risk for school failure. 

The Alternative Education Programs are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  The curriculum is aligned to the State Frameworks and Content Standards.  High School students are able to earn credit towards graduation and develop employment skills.  Students, who complete the program, transition to their neighborhood schools, attend college, or find success in the world of work.
