Simon Youth Academies are non-traditional high schools that are located primarily in Simon Malls ® . The Academies give at-risk students the same education that they would receive in a traditional classroom but in a flexible environment. Compassionate academy teachers are able to focus on one-on-one learning thanks to an emphasis on small class sizes.

Academy graduates receive accredited high school diplomas from their public school districts, because each academy represents a partnership with one or more public school districts and is an extension of the local systems.
