Oregon Outreach Inc is a nonprofit alternative high school that serves at-risk youth who have not been successful in the main stream school system. The mission of OOI is to provide an accredited academic program along with a comprehensive support system that enables youth to succeed in the classroom, at home, and in the community. We currently have 2 youth programs contracted with Molalla and Scappoose high schools. Also, we have a developing Adult Diploma Program that allows adults over the age of 21 to earn their diplomas online and at their own pace.

Our organization has been working with youth for over 30 years! We may be small, but we are mighty! We are an accredited high school program offering students the opportunity to graduate with an Oregon diploma and to develop transition plans for post secondary.
