High School Academy Partners
In order to better prepare students for college and the workforce, all five RRISD high schools offer a multitude of Academy selections, much like the traditional higher education setting. Through the Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM), the Academy of Professional Studies, the Academy of International Business & Economics as well as a selection of unique academies, students will receive a well rounded education that also gives them a jumpstart into their career pursuit, some even presenting professional certification opportunities.
Each Academy depends on Business Partners to enrich and enhance the classroom experience through guest speaking, student internships, ‘Real World Problem’ projects, business tours and Teacher Externships. Each Academy also has an Advisory Committee to keep curriculum and instruction on track. Become an Academy Partner Today!
