Piedmont Alternative Learning Experience

The Piedmont Alternative Learning Experience (PALE) provides support to students between the ages of 12 and 20 (7th – 12th grade) who have been unsuccessful in traditional school settings or who are at risk of dropping out of school and have a sincere desire to complete their high school education. The primary function of the program is to provide an alternative method for students to earn the necessary credits to receive a high school diploma.

For consideration for PALE, students and his or her parent or guardian must complete the forms provided on this website. Once complete, please email all documents to Russell Price, PALE instructor, at
