The Twilight Alternative Program provides students who would benefit from a non-traditional academic setting an alternative learning environment in the late afternoon to evening. This is a Regents-based program that gives high school students in our District the essential tools to succeed and complete their high school academic requirements in this unique program or eventually return to their home high school to complete their degree.
In Twilight, students attend smaller class sizes, receive a wide variety of teaching methods, participate in non-traditional evaluations, and work with teachers and support staff to have their social, mental, and emotional needs met. The motto for the program is “Go Beyond Your Potential.” This motto symbolizes hope and determination as our students are encouraged to challenge themselves academically, emotionally and socially. Our logo will have the guiding light of the North Star, which shows the clear direction students are going, towards their graduation and beyond.
The Twilight Alternative Program is held Monday – Thursday from 3:45 pm – 8:15 p.m. Regular daily attendance is required as students are expected to meet the State-mandated instructional time. Our program is an alternative avenue from traditional school which allows students flexibility in their schedules and prepares them for post-secondary education or employment. For more information about the program, contact Dr. Danielle N. Williams at (516) 812-5647.
