Welcome to Academy for Success

Linda Mckeever

Dear Parents/Family Members, Students, and Community Members:

Welcome to the Academy for Success (AFS). Our goals are to ensure a safe and caring learning environment, established in order to support our students’ social-emotional learning needs, and to provide the very best standards-based instruction for all students, taking into consideration each child’s needs. Staffed by highly qualified leaders, teachers and behavior technicians, the Academy for Success is the  Cartwright Elementary School District’s alternative education program.  


While attending AFS, students learn and integrate Boys Town social skills/behaviors through “Skill of the Week” lessons and consistent practice in different settings throughout the entire day. Students earn points daily as part of our program and are able to purchase items from their classroom store at the end of the day as a motivator, which increases self-awareness and positive choices.  Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) expectations are posted and also practiced daily with RISE procedures in all locations:

At AFS our vision is to empower our students to RISE to exceed their goals.


At AFS We:

  • Respect All

  • Initiate Kindness

  • Safely Act

  • Encourage Responsibility to EXCEED our Goals

When students are prepared to transition to their least restrictive environment (LRE), they will have demonstrated appropriate social skills and behavioral strategies that support their success at their home campus. Further, our transition specialist collaborates with parents/family members, the home school, and students to ensure a successful transition.  

The Academy for Success proudly supports student needs from each school in the Cartwright Elementary School District!
