Okanogan Alternative High School serves students ages 16-20 and allows them to maintain a daily school schedule. It is a half day program in which students work at their own pace to catch up on credits or work an accelerated path to graduation. This is an excellent program for students who need consistency and who want the additional support that being at WorkSource provides. Students will receive job search support and have a half day each day to pursue work.
