About Dowell J. Howard

  • Mission

    We, the staff of Dowell J. Howard Center, accept the responsibility of teaching all students skills for life, to include a sense of their future potential and a love of learning, by committing to a non-traditional process for earning various credentials that can include a high school diploma.

    To this end, we also accept responsibility for:

    • reviving and refining a sense of student confidence in their ability to be successful learners
    • redefining "school" for students who have lost their focus
    • providing specific vocational training for students who have determined a career goal
    • assuring that students have the advantage of interacting with adults who care deeply about the content they are teaching and who share that care with the students
