Collinsville Alternative School is simply a different method of educating students. CAS operates on a six week block schedule; therefore, our students only have to concentrate on two classes at a time. This is very beneficial for those students who struggle academically with seven classes a semester. We offer a “blended” education setting where students are with a classroom teacher, take e2020 classes online, or a combination of the two methods. Since the state only allows 15 students in each class, our teachers are able to quickly get to know their students and are able to help and interact with them in their classes. Our small classes are very detrimental to the learning process. CAS usually graduates 12 – 15 students each year, and their diploma is the same as if they attended classes at the high school.
