We empower young people to take learning into their own hands, with the help of ours.

A good education is the greatest gift you can give yourself or anyone else.

The academic program at Diamond Ranch Academy sets the bar with our quality of education, commitment to our student’s academic achievement, and adherence to our mission of Empowering Lifelong Learners

Here at Diamond Ranch Academy, we understand that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to learning. That’s why so many young people can become disinterested in school – they aren’t learning at the correct speed and either feel overwhelmed or under-stimulated. Our goal at Diamond Ranch Academy is to tailor learning to students’ individual abilities, allowing them to maximize their learning potential and thrive in the classroom.

Our accredited academic program empowers students by providing individual support from certified teachers in a traditional classroom environment. Mastery-based learning helps students develop the academic skills and confidence needed for success in the classroom. Special Education personnel can help identify a student’s learning disabilities and provide services to those with existing Individual Education Plans (IEPs).

Students have access to the following: transcript preparation, college test preparation, assistance with the college application process, and academic planning. Competitive athletics and extracurricular clubs are essential to the student’s daily life. These opportunities allow students to improve individual talents and abilities while learning valuable lessons regarding teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, and humility. 

The academic approach at Diamond Ranch Academy is unlike that of most other institutions. We utilize a personalized instruction system, promoting student ownership in the learning process. We want students to take charge of their learning and feel empowered by being able to do so. With the support of certified teachers in a traditional classroom setting, students leave Diamond Ranch Academy having gained the knowledge and skills to pursue what they are passionate about while at the same time feeling confident in their abilities to master the things that are difficult to them.

In our system, core credit is granted when your child masters content, not when they’ve merely spent time in class, as students must pass tests and assignments with 80% or better. This allows teachers and students to focus on learning techniques, test preparation strategies, and study skills. As students apply these tools and retake tests, their scores will improve. As study skills and ability increase, student confidence in the learning process also improves, allowing students to develop newfound positive attitudes toward school.
