Academics

The mission of Roxbury Preparatory Charter School is to prepare its students to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college.

Roxbury Prep High School (RPHS) opened its doors in August 2015 with a founding 9th grade class. RPHS serves as the bridge between our Roxbury Prep middle schools and college by ensuring our scholars develop the academic and personal fortitude to embark on this transformative journey.

 

Our Teaching Approach

At RPHS, we seek to create a purposeful and challenging student experience that will be shaped by three critical elements:

 

Rigorous Academic Curriculum

Scholars will engage in a college preparatory course of study that is aligned to College Board and Common Core standards and proven to best prepare students for success in college and beyond.

 

Holistic School Culture

Scholars will be members of a supportive and diverse community that contributes to the development of a strong sense of self, a bias for action, an ability to persevere, and an appetite for the wonders of life.

 

Integrated Technology

On a daily basis, scholars will apply innovative and responsible uses of technology to advance their academic learning, create original content across all subjects, and develop industry-specific skills and practices.

 

Academic Life

RPHS' academic vision aligns itself with a scope and sequence that will best prepare scholars to be admitted to and graduate from a 4-year college or university. Scholars will be able to exercise choice in each area of learning to truly cultivate those academic pathways that speak to their passion and talents

 

Technology

Technology is at the center of the world we live in today. It is not the future, it is now. It is not a luxury, it is a requirement. At RPHS, our scholars will develop the fluency to engage in and shape the digital world around us. Each scholar will have use of their own laptop, take requirements in Computer Science and Media Arts, use online tools across all content areas, and have access to advanced technology courses and internships.
