High School Program

Individuals who arrive to the Renaissance Campus are temporarily displaced from their school districts. However, the well-educated staff here works to ensure that a smooth transition occurs into our high school program. Overall, the goal is to ensure that individuals can continue back at their home districts, along with their peers, once they have graduated from the Kids Escaping Drugs Renaissance Campus recovery program.

While on campus, individuals in grades 8-12 will:

  • Attend school 5 days a week (Monday-Friday) for 2 hours each day.
  • Complete work in core subjects (English, science, social studies, and math).
  • Utilize computers for school assignments.
  • Receive grades on all assignments and receive report cards at the end of each quarter. (Report cards are sent to all home districts at the end of each semester).
  • Complete any required NYS Regents exams or mid-term exams on campus.
