RPA in the news: See how the credit recovery programs are changing lives at RPA. Also, our student government did a wonderful job sharing their work in this Herald News Article!  

We would like to thank DDS, UYCP, Fall River Office of Youth Connections and People, Inc. for offering RPA students with workforce training and paid internships working with children and/or adults with developmental disabilities. The experience they received will provide those students with the skills necessary to excel in positions in the health care and human services industry. We greatly appreciate our community partners!

Core Beliefs and Values Statement for RPA

We are Respectful. We are Responsible. We are Reliable. We are Ready to Learn.

The RPA learning community supports a student-centered classroom and multiple educational options, which provide the support that each individual student needs, thus reducing the dropout rate and leading more students toward graduation. As educators, we will collaborate to search for various avenues to better serve our population through rigorous instruction, engaging content and curriculum, and holding students to high expectations that will lead them to find success.

In addition, we will prepare young people for the real world through multiple intervention strategies and programs that will lead students towards success both inside and outside the classroom. We will foster a school environment where we promote family and community engagement. We will do everything we can to connect with students’ families and community partners to support us with our vision that ALL students can be successful through multiple alternative pathways.
