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 projects, business tours and Teacher Externships. Each Academy also has an Advisory Committee to keep curriculum and instruction on track.
