What We Do

The overriding philosophy of Radford School is to provide a challenging and enriching college preparatory curriculum in a small class setting that allows students to develop intellectually and socially. Academic excellence, individualized instruction, and personal development are emphasized. Our curriculum is designed to foster an enthusiasm for life-long learning and appreciation for hard work. The observance of school traditions is an important extra dimension to the academic program. Radford administration and faculty provide an atmosphere that fosters moral and intellectual growth, ensuring Radford graduates become productive, problem-solving citizens who work toward the betterment of society.

Our purpose is to guide students to identify their strengths and goals to find admission to a college or university where they will be successful. College planning consists of guiding students through the college admission process. Meeting with the students to make sure they are meeting both graduation and college acceptance requirements, as well as, providing them with information on scholarship opportunities and financial aid applications. In addition, we offer a College Awareness Preparation Program: Grades PreK-8th.

Advanced Placement (AP) and dual credit

Most high school English, mathematics, social studies, and science courses are either Advanced Placement (AP) or Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) level classes.

Radford School offers fundamental core courses to qualified high school seniors and juniors during the daytime. Students receive both high school credit and college credit for their courses in the dual credit program. The college class is a replacement rather than an addition. Students take just one class, the college class, and get both high school and college credit.

 
Graduation Requirements

Students must earn 26 credits of approved courses to graduate.
