Redmond Proficiency Academy (RPA) announced today that enrollment for the 2020-21 school year opens on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020 at 8 a.m. and is scheduled to close on Sunday, March 1, 2020 at 5 p.m.
“Our open enrollment period provides a great opportunity for families to compare their current education experience with what we’re offering at RPA,” Executive Director Jon Bullock said. “With a 94 percent graduation rate and robust educational and extracurricular experiences, we’re happy to invite students to come and see what we’re all about, and hopefully, become part of our thriving community.”
RPA features a College Prep program that utilizes a university model scheduling system in which students take advanced courses and learn to be effective university students by learning in seminar environments –– emulating a college campus experience.
The tuition-free public charter school offers courses in award-winning robotics, arts and theatre programs, in addition to computer science, digital filmmaking, rock climbing, Spanish language immersion and many others.
Drawing students from throughout Central Oregon, including Bend, Madras, Sisters, and Prineville, RPA has a diverse culture and creative atmosphere focused on exploration and success, Bullock explained.
