Aspire Academy is a non-traditional high school program located at the Richmond Technical Center (2020 Westwood Avenue, Richmond VA 23230) that will provide students with academic, attendance, and/or behavioral challenges the opportunity to obtain a high school diploma through a modified school schedule and blended learning model.
Students will participate in an educational platform that is self-paced and have the opportunity to obtain multiple standard credits during their designated four-hour schedule to assist them in credit recovery and acceleration. More specifically, a student can begin the year as a 10th-grader and end the year as a 12th-grader who graduates in June or July if he/she completes the required coursework and successfully completes his/her Standards of Learning assessments. Additionally, students will receive social, emotional, and/or behavioral supports as appropriate from the school social worker, therapeutic day treatment counselor, and/or mentor.

• Session A: 8:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m.
• Session B: 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
