Abraxas High School is a continuation high school that serves students who need an educational environment that is smaller, more intimate, and more flexible than what is typically found at comprehensive high schools.


Abraxas students typically select this school because they are at risk of not receiving a high school diploma, and they believe that Abraxas can help to make that goal a reality.


Those who enroll at Abraxas High School are usually 16 years old or older, and voluntarily choose to attend this school because they and their parents appreciate the unique opportunities that Abraxas makes possible.
