A variety of curricula are offered, including traditional textbook and project-based instruction, American Preparatory Institute (API) self-paced studies, and online instruction via Apex, as well as the opportunity to earn both high school and college credit through Collin College.

Students who have lost educational time will benefit from self-paced instruction that offers the opportunity to earn high school credits as each course is completed.

As course work is completed, a student advances immediately, rather than waiting for a new semester to begin. This is a real bonus for those who are motivated to catch up and even pass their peers.

Serenity High is a Texas Education Agency-designated campus within McKinney ISD, and it is fully accredited by the State of Texas. Many Serenity students go on to attend college, while others enter the labor force or enlist in the armed forces.

Serenity High is affiliated with the Association of Recovery Schools.
