Home of the Grizzlies!
Feather River Academy’s summer school ESY program is in full swing. We have forty students enrolled in the day school program and another forty one students enrolled in the independent study program. One highly motivated independent study student completed his graduation requirements in the second week, earning his diploma! We anticipate another 5-10 students will complete graduation requirements prior to the end of ESY on July 17th. The top credit earner in ESY has completed 7.5 credits, and a handful of other students have already completed over 5 credits. Students are primarily working on core subjects, in addition to theopportunity to participate in the on-site PEclass, and earn elective credits through workexperience and other extra-curricular activities. Along with 2014-2015 Feather River Academy students, we have students attending from schools throughout the county, including Albert Powell, Yuba City High, River Valley, Sutter Union High School, and East Nicholas High. ESY is five weeks this summer, running fromJune 8th – July 17th; students get the week June 29th-July 3rd off.
Feather River Academy Awarded a Six Year Accreditation
Feather River Academy has received its first WASC Accreditation. Not only was FRA rewarded with a six year accreditation, but they only need a one day review after the third year. This is the highest accreditation a school can achieve.
Congratulations to the entire staff at Feather River Academy for their outstanding contributions to the students of FRA. Their efforts were clearly seen as evidence from their Self-Study report when the accreditation team came for their visitation. The WASC team was extremely pleased with the strong and positive relationships between the students and staff. They were also pleased with the efforts of the staff to ensure students are not only attending, but want to attend and maintain the academic rigor necessary for student success after graduation.
