High School Summer Programming Opportunities
We are excited to announce that RPA will again offer various high school summer school programs to keep students engaged and learning all summer! RPA will offer the Online RPA High School (HS) Summer School Program, a musical theatre workshop, and various summits for all current and incoming RPA high school students. RPA is also partnering with Central Oregon Community College (COCC), OSU-Cascades, and the Redmond Area Parks and Recreation District (RAPRD) to offer additional community summer programming to RPA students at no cost. Students can enroll in multiple programs if it suits their schedules.
The Online RPA (HS) Summer School Program, which will run between July 10th and August 18th, will use a digital curriculum or RPA-created online courses to help students earn credits in any courses where they need to demonstrate proficiency.
RPA will also offer in-person summit opportunities for high school students to engage in additional credit-earning options. Summit opportunities include Camp 9, an AP Summit, and a New Student Summit. You can review our HS Summer School Programs Guide for more information about the exciting summits we are planning for students this summer.
We will also offer a musical theater workshop for all current and incoming theater students on August 8, 9, and 10 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the high school campus. This summer workshop will dive into all things Musical Theatre with a heavy emphasis on dance.
RPA is pleased to announce that we are continuing to partner with local educational organizations to offer their summer courses to RPA students at no cost. OSU-Cascades offers a Summer Academy that provides an excellent way for high school students to check out college for a week. Please use the High School Summer School Programs Sign Up Form to indicate your interest in signing up for the OSU Cascades Summer Academy. We will then work with OSU-Cascades to enroll students on a first come, first serve basis. We will contact any students interested in attending the OSU-Cascades Summer Academy and let them know if they will be offered a spot in the program.
Interested students can also participate in COCC Youth Camps. You can find out more about COCC Youth Camps here. New camps are constantly being added, so check here regularly for new camp opportunities. When registering online, you can put the code RPAYOUTH in the “Apply Promo Code” field at the end of checkout, and it will deduct the tuition, leaving nothing due.
Students are also able to enroll in summer activities that take place with the Redmond Area Parks and Recreation District (RAPRD). Please use the High School Summer School Programs Sign Up Form to indicate your interest in signing up for a RAPRD course, and we will reach out with additional details. You will need an active account with RAPRD to sign up for a course, so we encourage you to create one now if you don’t already have an active account.
