About Us

SAIL is located in downtown Pigeon, sharing a building with Emma's Coffee House.  Our building serves as an optional landing space for our students with access to WIFI, staff support, friends, and of course, great coffee!

Our graduation requirement of 24 credits allows for students in need of credit recovery as well as those looking for a lighter load within their schedule for work placements.

Every application at SAIL begins a conversation about life skills, goals, and our students' strengths.  At our initial intake interview, we will create an educational roadmap to fit each students' goal and abilities.  This could include any of the following: 

  • Apprenticeships

  • Non-CTE Work-Based Learning

  • In-Person electives at Lakers High School

  • In-person classes at our local Tech Center

  • Emotional & Mental Wellness

  • Community Partnerships

Philosophy

Our Students Come First

Our philosophy at SAIL is simple - students come first.  We believe each and every student has the power and strength within themselves to be successful, no matter their odds.  We work with our students as we would work with other adults, giving them a voice and a say in their education. 

We encourage creativity and second chances.  We allow for set-backs and mistakes.  We advocate for our students and their best chance for success.
