The Performance-Based Program is a non-traditional, voluntary high school program using flexible scheduling to create a differently scheduled, independent mode for credit achievement. The program will address the educational needs of students age 16 and older. It allows progress toward completion of a diploma for students not on track to graduate with their peers or who have significant barriers to their success in a traditional high school setting.

Note: Students entering Central Performance Based Academy who have previously attended a non-accredited school will enter under probationary status. Central administration will review the student’s transcript and earned credits to determine grade level placement. This review and grade placement may include testing. In all sequential course work (such as English I, II, III and IV) the student must earn at least a “C” by the end of the first semester course to remain at that level of placement and receive credit in the preceding course. Students must also meet all other graduation requirements.
Regular attendance and progress is the key to successful completion of the program. Students are required to complete the minimum weekly assignments as outlined in their Odysseyware coursework planner. At Central Performance Based Academy, completion of coursework with no assignments in overdue is considered full-time attendance.
In addition, all performance- based students will maintain no overdue assignments and have on-pace progress in each enrolled class every week.
