Starr Academy at Rawhide

Starr Academy Accreditation

The Starr Academy is fully accredited by the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation (WRISA). WRISA is a state chapter of the National Federation of Nonpublic School State Accrediting Associations which is recognized by the College Board and the Office of Non-Public Education, an office within the U. S. Department of Education.

Individual Education Plan (IEP)

Most students who come to Rawhide are four or more years below their age’s reading level and have not developed consistent study habits. Without these basic skills, they are simply not motivated to try when it comes to school. As part of our initial assessment process, your son will take a pretest to determine his educational skill levels. Then, we will help him set specific goals for his Individual Education Plan (IEP) while he is here.

Our fully licensed teaching staff is skilled at developing and implementing individualized education plans that work toward realistic goals; whether it’s helping a student earn his high school diploma or learn how to work with peers – it’s education for the mind and heart.

Classes at Starr Academy are conducted Monday thru Friday, and the school day is a standard length.

Class sizes are small, meaning each student receives the individual attention he needs.

Many students make dramatic improvements in academics while at Rawhide. The teaching staff at the Academy work hard to help them catch up on their credits before leaving the ranch.
