The Reynolds Advance College Academy

The Reynolds Advance College Academies (ACA) provide outstanding high school students the opportunity to earn an associate degree while completing the requirements for their high school diploma. We have carefully selected and sequenced the college curriculum and courses in the program in order to satisfy the requirements of the high school diploma and associate degree at the same time.

Students will apply to ACA in the 8th grade, enroll in advanced high school courses in the 9th grade, and take the required college coursework for the associate degree during the 11th and 12th grades. Students in the ACA program are required to attend a four-week session of college courses during the summer between their sophomore and junior year.
