THRIVE High School

THRIVE High School, starting in Fall 2021, is a program to help students who have had difficulty finding success in their current high school. THRIVE will serve students who need any combination of the following supports: a flexible schedule, relationships with positive adults, college and career exposure, and industry certification earned at the Richmond Technical Center. THRIVE will be located at RTC (North Building), and transportation will be provided to and from the student's home address. Students will have an individual plan created to help them graduate as soon as possible, while earning an industry-ready CTE certification. 

The THRIVE program serves students who are overage and under-credited, and at high risk for dropping out of school. Interested students will choose between two daily academic sessions for credit attainment and CTE certifications. Blended instruction will include engaging teachers and Edgenuity. Students will benefit from small class sizes, wraparound supports, a dedicated School Counselor, and Communities in Schools. In the alternating class session (AM or PM), THRIVE students will attend a CTE program at the Richmond Tech Center.
