Accelerate your graduation
Two graduations per year (December and June) offered to accelerate success during and beyond high school for students ages 16-22 years old.
Scheduling based on credits needed, not grade level: All students are enrolled in the courses they need to complete a high school diploma, regardless of current grade level and/or age.
Earn credits in half the time: Students enroll in 6 classes per semester, and work towards earning a full Carnegie unit in each course. Therefore, if a student came to RAHS with zero high school credits, they could be eligible to graduate in two school years with a high school diploma (and even less time if starting with RAHS with credits from other high schools).
Extended school year to maximize supports offered for students (August through June calendar)
All students benefit from: Daily advisory meeting, strong intervention services and differentiated supports, small class sizes, multiple instructors in classrooms, community partnerships
Transition planning: Support with transition planning for post high school plans for career and college plans including college trips & applications, scholarships applications, resume building, interview prep
Abbreviated schedule: Available for students with documentation of jobs and/or additional responsibilities outside of school
Prepare for a career and/or college: Earn Industry Based Credentials in Digital Media, Nursing, Emergency Responder, Carpentry & Electrical
Other elective classes: CrossFit PE, Yoga, Digital Photography, career-based internships
