Philosophy

RMA engages all students needing a non-traditional learning environment by focusing on building self-esteem, improving academic performance, and enhancing student’s lives as they get back on track leading to promotion and high school graduation.

RMA believes all students can achieve success in a positive challenging educational environment that stimulates their interests, channels their energies, and develops their abilities. RMA is committed to providing a non-traditional learning environment for students with distinct needs for these educational services. Recognizing the individual strengths and intrinsic worth of all students, RMA modifies educational services to provide each student with personalized opportunities to increase their academic, career and employment, and social skills leading to completion of credits for promotion and a high school diploma.

RMA believes adolescents are most likely to achieve immediate and life-long success when all members of the school community share responsibility for developing each student’s intellectual, physical, social, and vocational potential. Recognizing many parent and community members’ frustration with traditional education programs, RMA creates active participation opportunities for parents and community members to help students increase their specific talents and their self-worth. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves, “U Are responsible for U”, by being offered every chance to succeed academically, socially, and vocationally. To accomplish this, RMA invites and develops parent and community participation though the RMA School Advisory Committee and through programs, such as On The Job Training.
