Hope through a second chance in education
VOA High School (VOAHS), formerly Phoenix SALT and Opportunity High Schools, is a state approved, contract alternative program serving Minneapolis Public School (MPS) students. The school is located at the VOA Education Center at the Hiawatha Light Rail station near the intersection of Cedar and Franklin.
VOAHS prizes its diverse student population — serving students from all over the metro area as well as neighboring suburbs. This program allows for credit make-up and student success by offering flexible scheduling, small class sizes, extra credit earning opportunities, an on site independent study program and substantial student support. An additional feature is an experience & service learning component. Students have an opportunity to focus on leadership development and community service learning through hands-on experiential learning, outdoor adventures and environmental activities.
