RCMA is thrilled to be a part of the A Community Thrives grant program! All funding received from this campaign will help fund our Graduate Support program. In order to give our students the best possible chance at success, RCMA tracks students as they leave our charter schools and move on to local high schools. We track grades, attendance, discipline and general well-being. Our Graduate Support Coordinator assists with student and parent orientation and adjustment. They serve as an advocate and can step in when a student is dealing with issues that might be specific to a families where English is not spoken at home. They also assist with the next transition; when students are preparing for their lives post-high school. Whether it be college or trade school funding or moving into the work world, both students and parents will need direction. Funding raised by this campaign will help provide the staff, technology and associated necessities to make the Graduate Support Program effective.
