River Springs provides a number of excellent academy programs. Essentially, our academies are a hybrid of traditional classroom-based instruction and structured homestudy. This option is particularly appealing for students new to homeschooling as well as those who are looking for a blended program including home study, classroom learning and the expert day-to-day direction of a credentialed teacher. Our credentialed teacher meets with academy families at the school site. The teacher's involvement may vary from advisory and assessment capacity to one of almost complete administration of the student learning process.
Independent study students - These students are generally at risk, and may not been successful in traditional public school. They may need extra help to meet their educational goals. These students meet with their credentialed teacher on a weekly basis at the academy site to receive instruction, obtain new assignments and get feedback on assignments they have already completed.
Site-Based High School Students – We offer a unique 5 day site-based K-12 program at Palm Street Student Center in Indio. This is a community oriented program with an intense focus on literacy and character development.
