WHEN: Classes will be in session from 8:00am to 10:53am every day. Students and faculty will participate in Rye Community Lunch beginning at 10:57am and take additional RHS courses in the afternoon.
WHERE: The 3rd Floor of Rye High School which will be reconfigured as a collaborative learning space.
Q: What will this look like for our students?
WHY: To offer students a program in which they meet challenges by pursuing their own interests and developing their own talents. To offer students a chance to explore knowledge by inviting them to cross disciplines. To offer students smaller classes in which they can learn how to build and sustain a healthy community.
HOW: The classes in The Academy will be relatively small, so students will receive more individualized attention from their teachers. Students in The Academy will learn and grow by completing projects, solving “real world” problems and participating in internships. Students will be able to choose how to approach challenging projects, and choose how they demonstrate their new knowledge and skills. Teachers will offer feedback by setting personalized goals with students, and measuring the degree to which students accomplish those goals.
HOW TO APPLY
If you choose to apply, please be as candid as you can on the application and during the interview. We do not have an “ideal” candidate in mind; admission decisions will be based on what students want to get out of the program, and what we can all contribute to our learning community.
