Academics

 

Independent Educational Plans are at the heart of the success of our academic program. Eagle Ranch Academy utilizes a “Blended Learning” academic model with each student, having 3 online classes and 2 on campus classes.  Eagle Ranch Academy uses a powerful cutting edge Virtual High School software as part of our Academic program. Through this system students receive independent educational plans unique to the student’s needs to advance to the next grade level or to earn a High School diploma.

ERA’s academic program allows students to excel in any course and quickly make up for lost time in school due to previous poor performance. Upon leaving ERA, most students are either caught up with their peer class or ahead. They are taught the value of education, whereas, educational goals are developed with each student which addresses their unique talents and interests.

Eagle Ranch Academy offers core curriculum which is age and grade appropriate. Since the academic program is individualized each student is immediately set up with their own specific Academic Plan and class schedule which meets the needs of the student. The program provides students the opportunity to meet their educational goals while working on own therapeutic concerns and issues.
