A Tradition of Academic Excellence
Radford School's mission is to educate and prepare its young men and women for a lifetime of success.
Radford begins preparing students in foreign languages at an early age. Students may take several French, Spanish, and Latin levels in middle school and into high school. Students are also offered AP Latin, AP Spanish, and AP Spanish Literature.
Advanced Placement (AP) Classes
High school students prepare for a rigorous college curriculum by taking Advanced Placement courses in the Spring. For a listing of all Advanced Placement courses offered at Radford, please visit the High School Academics page.
Dual Credit Classes
Dual Credit classes are offered to Juniors and Seniors from Radford. Taking these courses allows them to achieve not only high school credit but also college credit. Radford has a teacher in charge of verifying that students maintain all the dual credit course requirements being offered online.
Fine Arts have always been an important component of a Radford education. Studies have shown that exposure to art and music helps a student's overall ability to do well.
Outside the Classroom
We also offer educational opportunities outside the school year, such as Curriculum Plus and Summer Camp.
Curriculum Plus – Love to travel? Our curriculum plus program offers an exciting learning environment by visiting cities worldwide in a group environment. During the summer break each year, Radford middle school and high school students take a trip along with parents, teacher chaperones, and a group leader. Previous trips have included such international destinations as London, Paris, Quebec, and Montreal. Elementary students travel locally while still experiencing an exciting learning adventure.
Summer Camp – Through June, Radford students may sign up for a summer camp full of activities and field trips. Radford summer camp is also open to non-students. Please contact the school administration for more information.
