About The School

Progressive Academy of Creative Education

The Progressive Academy of Creative Education is the secondary alternative education program for grades 6-12 in the Montgomery Public School System.

The staff at Progressive Academy is dedicated to providing students an aggressive and professionally executed program. Student success is our main focus. 

Important Message for Parents and Students

All MPS school students are required to wear uniforms. State educational authorities and recent court decisions have determined that style of dress and hair should not disrupt classes, interfere with learning, prevent instruction, and should comply with state health and safety standards. Montgomery Public Schools believes that requiring neat, clean, and appropriate clothing encourages an atmosphere conducive to learning, work, and discipline. Students are required to dress according to school board policy.
