Welcome to the Novak Academy! The Novak Academy is an alternative high school program that offers a highly engaging credit recovery system. We have five condensed semesters during the school year. When our students meet all of the Champaign School District's graduation requirements, they are eligible to participate in their home high school's (Centennial or Central) May graduation ceremonies.

At the Academy, we have five classroom teachers, a Student Services Coordinator, a special education teacher, a school social worker and a guidance counselor. We offer classroom taught classes for English, Math, Science and Social Studies, as well as, a computer lab where students can take digital curriculum classes, using the Apex system.

Our program provides small class sizes, and teachers who use alternative teaching strategies to engage students, and prepare them for their post-secondary plans. The Novak Academy's staff believes in partnering with students, families and the community to promote the highest level of student academic and social-emotional success.
