The not-for-profit school started in 1970 to help four students get a GED. Logos, meaning “word, speech or understanding” in Greek, realized a more in-depth education would lead to a high school diploma.
Middle school was added in 1997, 6th grade in 2008. Innovative programs, with a low student-to-staff ratio of 6:1, provide a lifeline for students who are unsuccessful in traditional school settings.
More than 2,000 at-risk adolescents have achieved emotional and academic success. Ninety-two percent of Logos’ graduates enter college and almost all who mainstream get a high school diploma and go on to college.
