Dear Parents and Guardians of Ron Hockwalt Academies students,
I am very excited about the 2015-2016 school year! There were many changes to the RHA staff this year, and the teachers have worked hard to put together an excellent program for your son or daughter.
As you know, RHA is a very special place for high school students. All staff members are concerned, caring professional educators who believe in, and want the best for all our kids! The staff is dedicated to providing the safest, most innovative educational program possible for our students.
RHA offers your student a chance to achieve and be successful academically. Students earn credits through a variety of academic and elective classes. We also offer child development and physical education as well as an online credit recovery program named “Edgenuity”.
An important challenge facing all educators is finding ways to help prepare students for the global issues we face. How do we prepare students to think and compete in a global market? We are now involved in a very exciting curricular program using the International Education and Research Network’s (IEARN) resources. IEARN allows our students to share educational projects, media, and student voices with students all over the world!
Furthermore, Ron Hockwalt Academies has an incredible fine arts program! RHA students become experts in studio art, digital and video photography, and graphic design. Look for another exciting art show in the spring of 2016!
Yes, there are many wonderful opportunities for students at RHA. On behalf of the entire RHA staff I invite you to come and visit. See for yourself the tremendous program Ron Hockwalt Academies offers your student!
Dr. Donna Hunter, Principal, Ron Hockwalt Academies
