The Cottage

Wagner Cottage graphic

The Cottage is an afternoon program designed for students who benefit from a small classroom setting with individual attention. Centrally located in Harvey West Park, The Cottage is accessible to students countywide and the afternoon class schedule allows students who are working or who have been out of school to reconnect with a high school education with an emphasis on career choices, character education, and literacy.
