Opportunity Academy is a set of alternative high school pathways that allow students to continue or restart on a pathway to a diploma if they are not succeeding at Holyoke High or Dean Technical High School. You can earn high school credits, prepare yourself to pass the MCAS, and graduate with a Holyoke Public Schools Diploma.
- Do you need an alternative to Holyoke High or Dean?
- Did the large high schools not work for you?
- Did you drop out but want to get back and receive a diploma?
- Do you have dreams for your future & need a diploma to achieve them?
WE HAVE A PATHWAY FOR YOU!

Any student who needs an alternative path to a diploma should contact us.
