Tower View Alternative High School, in Red Wing,
Minnesota, serves students ages 16-21 who find mainstream
public education an ineffective path to academic success
and a high school diploma.
Located on an historic 350-acre estate,
Tower View’s beautiful campus environment
is less institutionalized and more relationship-based.
Learning is individualized and classes are small.
Most coursework is self-paced and all work
is completed on-site; there is no homework.
To help reduce stress of completing academic work
by a fixed graduation date, each student earns semester credits
along a time continuum not exceeding the student’s 21st birthday.
(NOTE: Based upon course productivity during available attendance hours,
each student may determine when he or she graduates,
whether that is before, after, or on expected time of graduation.
Tower View shares the same school calendar as
Red Wing High School, and students may participate
in various Red Wing High School activities and classes.
