Students working in a space they helped to design in the Radnor Academy classroom.

Radnor Academy is embracing individualized learning and empowering students.

“If it wasn’t for this program, I don’t think I would graduate,” Jen (not her real name) said recently while sitting in class at Radnor High School. Jen struggled to get to school. Sometimes it was missing the bus, but sometimes it was dreading the hustle and bustle of the high school classrooms and hallways. The high school was not her comfort zone. But after a few months enrolled in the newest Radnor High School program, Radnor Academy, school is less of a struggle.

In the world of education, one size does not fit all. For students who require a more personalized, flexible and nurturing environment, the Radnor Academy is a beacon. This innovative high school setting, housed within Radnor High School, takes a novel approach to education by fostering individualized learning, small class sizes, and providing essential social-emotional support throughout the day.

One of the core tenets of Radnor Academy is a modified schedule tailored to individual students. This flexibility allows students to participate in online courses hosted by Radnor or follow a blended schedule with traditional classes. Whether it is online or in person, providing a separate entrance leading directly to the classroom space or a modified transportation schedule, Radnor Academy accommodates the student’s comfort and learning style.

For the students participating in Radnor Academy, attending school has become less of a challenge. As one student put it, “I like how the program makes the school day feel more doable, making it easier to come to school.” Another student taking advantage of the blended model appreciates that it, “provides a mental break throughout the day.”

The Radnor Academy is not just school; it is a nurturing community that understands the unique needs of its students. With a focus on individualized learning, small class sizes, emotional support and a flexible environment, it provides students with the tools to succeed academically and personally.
