Advanced Coursework Network
In the Fall of 2016, Rhode Island secondary schools will have the opportunity to expand the advanced level coursework available to their high school and middle school students through a new initiative, the Advanced Coursework Network (ACN).
The Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) will be supporting the costs of the coursework for eligible public high school students. As such, Local Education Agencies (LEAs), public schools, public school students and their families from eligible schools in Rhode Island will not be assessed any tuition or fees associated with participating in ACN courses. Students from outside of the state may be eligible to take the courses at cost, depending on availability.
The ACN will enable students and their families to enroll in formerly unavailable high value academic and career-focused courses while they remain enrolled at their secondary school.
Coursework is offered through state-approved course providers. New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) is a state-approved Network Provider.
This initiative promotes college and career readiness and provides coursework options aligned with a student’s passion, interest and need.
Key benefits that high school students will receive include:
- The opportunity to individualize their graduation pathway
- High value coursework to prepare them for college and career success
- Choices of coursework beyond what is available at their high school
Students work with their family and school counselors to enroll in appropriate level coursework.
Please consult with your guidance counselor/school administrator to see if your school offers the course(s) that you are interested in.
Course space is provided on a first come, first served basis.
