Liberty High School was established in 1997 as an academic alternative school designed to provide each student an opportunity to be academically successful and college- and career-ready through individualized instruction, life-skills education, and social services. Liberty High School practices unity through diversity in a caring, collaborative, reflective learning community where every student is valued as an individual. Success is achieved through opportunity by addressing the whole person: physical, spiritual, emotional, social, and intellectual.
Liberty enrolls students grades seven through twelve. The seventh- through ninth-gradeprograms are designed to support seventh, eighth, and ninth graders who are struggling at their current grade level in an effort to meet academic needs and assist in transitioning to the next grade level. Liberty also supports students in grades ten through twelve who have struggled in the traditional high school environment. Liberty provides students the opportunity to succeed with a small teacher-to-student ratio, individualized graduation plans, life-skills education, and hands-on learning experiences. The students can take advantage of flexible scheduling in order to progress towards graduation. Liberty offers classes on a quarter schedule and with block scheduling.
Liberty’s focus is to prepare students for graduation and postsecondary plans. The students follow district and state curriculum guidelines. Students focus on credit recovery, postsecondary exploration, and social maturity. Liberty students have access to grade-level-assigned guidance counselors, a Youth Services Center (YSC), a social worker, and outside counseling agencies. The students take advantage of weekly advisory time designed by the school’s College Access teacher. This provides students the opportunity to visit colleges, research postsecondary opportunities, and explore Louisville’s skilled trades. Students hone their leadership skills through various school programs, such as Men of Quality, Women of Worth, Student Forum, ETS, Chick-fil-A Academy, and other teacher-led clubs.
