COMPASS is a voluntary high school program designed to provide an alternative education for students in grades 11-12 in the Linn-Mar and Marion Independent School Districts, or referred by attending institutions. Students attending COMPASS earn credit toward their resident high school diploma. COMPASS meets the unique needs of students by providing individualized graduation plans, a modified schedule, small student-teacher ratio, relevant curriculum, and community involvement.

The goal of the program is to provide academic and social/emotional support so that every student will achieve academic and personal success.

Congratulations to these outstanding COMPASS students
