School Life

Academy of Excellence

RHA offers a range of Extracurricular Programs to students. Discovering new interests, finding hidden talent and committing to something bigger than oneself are important moments in the growth of any child. That’s why we offer optional clubs and activities to engage the mind and excite the spirit.

These programs run either during lunch or after school – each running around 8-12 weeks long. The programs range in cost from $160 to $360 depending on topic and length. Extracurricular Programs are not part of our in-class work and are completely optional.
