For two years; organizers, advocates, and supporters have been tirelessly working towards opening a high school for young people who need an alternative learning environment that supports their recovery from substance use disorder. On that foundation and mission, the Phoenix Recovery Academy (operating as a program under Phoenix Foundation of Maryland) is now officially opening enrollment for the 2020-2021 academic year.

“This school will be a light in the dark,” says Sara Varga, Head of School for Phoenix Recovery Academy. “Seeing the culmination of the hard work and dedication of the community volunteers, including our board members, means lives will change, and hope will be afforded to so many families worried right now,” concludes Varga.

Phoenix Recovery Academy will be accepting rolling admissions with an inaugural first day scheduled for August 31. This non-public high school will service adolescents grades 9 through 12, is tuition-based with scholarships available, and is open to students who are as serious about their education as they are about their recovery from substance use disorder.
Applications can be filled out online at http://www.phoenixrecoveryacademy.org or e-mail svarga@phoenixrecoveryacademy.org .
