Overage Middle School Programs

Accelerate Over-Age Middle School Students’ Path to High School

Utilizing our rigorous blended learning program and time-tested
school culture focused on pro-social relationships, Catapult Learning
prepares over-age middle school students to progress to a traditional
high school environment, equipped with the tools they need to stay
on pace for promotion and/or graduation. Providing a safe, inviting, and flexible environment, our Over-Age Middle School Program identifies risk factors that prevent students from progressing and develops critical-thinking skills supported by a student leadership model that allows for academic and behavioral success.

Designed for students in grades 5−8 who have been held back one or more years and are in danger of dropping out of school, our Over-Age Middle School Program gets struggling students back on track.
