PHILOSOPHY: Scholars in the Cedar Hill Independent School District are expected to conduct themselves as desirable members of society. Politeness in conduct, serious application to school work, and the consideration of the rights of others are standards which our students are expected to meet. It is the philosophy of the STRIVE Academy that students have the right to learn and teachers have the right to teach in a safe environment. The STRIVE Academy provides a highly structured and controlled academic setting with an emphasis on core curriculum, life/coping skills, and a counseling and guidance program designed to assist students to be more successful when they return to their regular campus.
MISSION: The mission of Cedar Hill ISD STRIVE Academy Disciplinary Alternative Education Program is to provide safe, highly structured, and temporary behavior management and learning environment that will enable students to return to, and succeed in, their regularly assigned classrooms and schools.
The mission of the Cedar Hill ISD STRIVE Hilltop Academy Dropout Prevention Program is to provide scholars who are overaged the opportunity to earn credits and skills needed for a high school diploma.
