An Alternative Learning Program

Welcome to Options at Edina High School. Options is a state approved alternative learning program located within Edina High School. It is designed to provide students who qualify with a second chance at designing and pursuing a graduation plan.

Students who are interested in taking courses through the Options alternative learning program must be considered at-risk under at least one of the state determined categories called Graduation Incentives. Intake into the Options program for full-time students will be considered after:

  • a referral from a guidance counselor or administrator; and
  • a meeting with a parent, student, guidance counselor, and the program coordinator
