Our goal is to have all our students accepted to colleges, and we will specially focus on this issue for each student. College preparation is one of our main objectives.
In order to motivate students, one of the key features of the education program at RACS is the “Individualized Learning Program” approach. In this approach, each student, starting in 10th grade, have an Individualized Learning Program (ILP). The main goal of the ILP is ensure and track a program for the college entrance of each student. This is specifying the student's academic goals for the year. It is delineate the responsibilities of Students and Parents and includes a timeline and benchmarks for achieving the stated goals. The timeline and benchmarks provide the format for evaluating on-going skill attainment. The ILP will be developed by the parents, supervisor, and student (if appropriate).
Parents are encouraged to actively participate in the formation of the ILP. The ILP Includes the Present Level of Educational Performance which describes how well the student is performing at that time. Long-term goals will be determined. These long-term goals are specific goals for academic and other skills for the student during the academic year. Short-term objectives will also be identified. These objectives will be the measurable, intermediate teaching steps to aid the student in achieving his/her long-term goals. Methods of determining progress will be outlined in order to measure the student's progress toward the ILP goals.
