Batavia Academy graduation

Alternative Education

  • The Genesee Valley BOCES offers two alternative middle and high school education programs. The Batavia Academy is located on the GV BOCES campus in Batavia, New York.  The Mount Morris Academy is located on the GV BOCES campus in Mount Morris, New York.

    Each school provides a small, nurturing environment, which gives each student the maximum amount of attention necessary to improve academic and social skills. Programs have been specifically designed to provide an educational option for students from our component school districts in grades 7-12 whose needs are not met by our traditional secondary schools. Teachers assist students in attaining a high school diploma by maintaining the same academic requirements as home schools.

    A typical registration process for Alternative Education is as follows:

    • The district contacts the Mount Morris or Batavia Academy (see contacts below) to discuss the enrollment request.
    • A student transcript is sent to the Academy.
    • A tour is offered to the student and their family.
    • The District is notified about whether or not the student can be enrolled.
    • If the student can be enrolled, a complete intake packet is sent to the family.
    • The first day is scheduled.
