School Purpose


School Purpose for Student Success

At Rio Rancho Cyber Academy the staff is dedicated to mentoring, modeling, motivating and monitoring students and the Edgenuity curriculum to meet the NM Common Core State Standards.  Teachers provide accommodations to students to meet their individual needs.  RRCA is not only an online school; we require mandatory attendance 2-3 days per week so that teachers can work with the students to provide:  1) core classes that support the concepts in the Edgenuity courses, 2) small group intervention, 3) one to one tutoring and assistance with assignments, 4) basic skills tutoring, 5) additional support and supervision, 6) a sense of community.  

The Edgenuity courses
provide: 1) academic rigor in the core content areas, 2) a diverse course catalog to include Advanced Placement courses, 3) alignment to state and national standards, 4) web-based management tools for tracking and reporting, 5) professional development and implementation support.

  • Effort: Always do my best; Effort = Success = Confidence = Merit
