River Academy is an alternative education environment serving students in grades 7–11. Created in partnership with Mastery Charter School, the program’s goal is to provide students with a successful academic experience while they work on improving their social and behavioral issues. Utilizing the RAS point system, (Respect property, Act responsibly and Show self-control), students successfully earn points daily following the River Academy’s classroom and building norms. Our high expectations help promote positive peer behavior.
Academic subjects are taught by state-certified teachers. Additional scaffolded activities provide children with experiences that have classroom and real-world applications. The staff at River Academy provide a safe, organized, and structured learning environment where all students have the opportunity to grow academically and behaviorally.
