High School Program Design
All scholars will attend Citrus Valley High School (CV) in partnership with Redlands Unified School District. As CV students, they will also become AVID students in good standing during their high school years.

Tuesday: 12th grade 6:00pm-8:00pm
Wednesday: 11th grade 6:00pm-8:00pm
Thursday: 10th grade 6:00pm-8:00pm
High School Academy
Scholars will meet weekly for classes designed to challenge them, expand their thinking, develop writing skills, and prepare them for college readiness. As scholars progress through high school, academies will focus on the college search process. Individual interests and needs will be met.
Scholars will receive weekly, evening mentoring at the University of Redlands from RCAP mentors immediately after their High School Academy. This mentoring will supplement AVID tutorials they will participate in during their AVID classes at CV. Scholars are welcome to attend additional RCAP mentoring sessions as needed.
Family Academies will be grouped by cohort and will address student and family needs. They will occur two times per semester during the 9th and 10th grade years. As scholars progress through high school, Family Academies will become more individual and personalized in order to continue meeting participant needs.
In support of AVID community service requirements, scholars will complete service projects as a program. RCAP will partner with local organizations for service opportunities. As seniors and undergraduate students, scholars will be expected to mentor eighth grade scholars as they begin their RCAP journey.
