• About Asbury

  • Asbury Family Resource Center, located on the west side of Johnson City, was established by the Washington County Board of Education in the fall of 1989. The community-based center provides programs and services that offer students and families of the targeted population the opportunity to improve their quality of life.

    Asbury was designed to provide a sheltered school environment for students who for health, economic, safety, or other circumstances need a flexible program to meet their educational needs.

Asbury Optional High

  • For students needing a nontraditional educational plan, the Optional High School program provides opportunities to earn credits to complete requirements for a regular diploma for graduation. In over 25 years of operation as an alternative secondary program, over 2,500 students have earned regular high school diplomas. To accommodate student needs, the individualized program of instruction allows flexible scheduling between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00p.m. each day. General Education Development (GED) materials are also provided.
