It's Your Choice.

Parkway Choice Programs offer students the opportunity to pursue a personal direction by providing access to high quality educational experiences outside of the walls of a traditional school and/or traditional calendar.

Adding a virtual course allows me to take what I enjoy and also take what I need. The online class also helps me get ahead for next year.

To me, Fern has made it possible for me to earn the credits I didn't have at my old school. I may even be able to graduate early.

Fern Ridge serves students from across the Parkway School District, providing a nontraditional learning environment compared to our four comprehensive high schools. At Fern, we focus on the student as a "whole" person by placing equal importance on meeting the needs of each student's educational, social, and emotional needs.

I chose South County Tech because of the clinical shadowing experience, practical skills taught throughout the class, and access to updated/state-of-the-art equipment.
