Barton County Academy offers a variety of services for our students.

In addition to the high school diploma completion program, ESL classes are offered to help non-native speakers gain proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking English.  Students who have small children are welcome to bring them to the supervised playroom while they attend classes.  We also utilize community services and resources to offer unique educational and recreational opportunities that meet the needs of students both in and out of the classroom. 

Our classes are provided through computer-based curriculum, which allows students to work within and outside our classrooms.  If your work schedule doesn’t permit you to attend during our hours, you have the option to work from home.  This flexibility comes in handy for our students with full-time jobs.

Our dedicated and caring staff members are committed to your immediate and long term success.
