The Renaissance Academy Prep School of Excellence, founded in 2012 and established in 2015, is a co-ed private, Christian, college, and career preparedness academy. We have a digital learning platform that allows us to deliver instruction in a blended format. Our curriculum is rigorous but rewarding in that our Achievers (students) avoid the learning slide as they successfully retain the skills they learn. Achievers learn how the Word of God is the basis of knowledge and skills for each content area. Consequently, the Achievers understand the content of their lesson as it relates to the perspective of the Christian worldview – not just the secular worldview.
Our curriculum includes career academies with courses that provide training and certification in various career fields. Additionally, our curriculum offers courses in foreign languages and over 50 electives. We also have advanced Placement courses with dual enrollment opportunities with area colleges. We strategically prepare our Achievers for mastery of college board exams. Indeed, our Achievers begin taking the ACT College Board exam in 7th grade.
We prepare our Achievers to be lifelong learners who are accountable for their performance spiritually, academically, socially, and civically. We encourage our Achievers to adhere to the A-O-R Model during their daily practices and activities.
- A- Action, or “What did you do?”
- O- Observation, or “What happened?”
- R- Reflection, or “How do you feel about it?”
Doing so increases the analytical and cognitive thinking capabilities of the Achievers. In likeness, our Achievers develop a high emotional intelligence quotient as they are continually analyzing and evaluating their actions against how God’s Word instructs us to live and learn. Excellence is our standard.
