Letter from student
I really love going to Sandhills Alternative Academy because it’s a
great place. The girls and boys are wonderful and the teachers are also
awesome! SAA’s manager, Pam Easterling love children and loves helping
them with their problems. This academy is a good place to learn how to
get along with others. The summer program is very amazing. During the
year, we do therapeutic activities. Sandhills Alternative Academy is
the place to go to enroll a child or teenager into this type of
program. This program can turn your entire life around in a good way.
The best part about this program is that the boys gout to the log
cabins and the girls stay at the office.
Letter from parent
I am so glad my son Ricky has gotten this chance to attend Sandhills
Alternative Academy. Until he started coming to school here, it was a
battle getting him to attend school regularly. Now he likes going to
school. When he left public school last year, he was in the 7th grade
and barely making D’s. Since attending Sandhills, he has working on an
8th and 9th grade level, and on his report card last year he had six
A’s and one B. He likes all of his teachers and other adults that work
with him. Since attending school here, Ricky has been able to get his
driving permit. When he turns 16 in November, he will be able to go on
to get his GED which he wants to get really bad.

Sandhills Alternative Academy is a valuable resource for many at-risk
students. The Academy provides an alternative means for students who
are encountering academic and/ or behavioral problems in the regular
school environment. Instructors work on helping students develop life
skills through a variety of activities. After attending Sandhills
Alternative Academy, many students have returned to the regular
classroom setting with a sense of self-worth, and they are successful
in the classroom.
