PSRC Early College at RCC Collage

Here at PSRC Early College at RCC our primary focus is to ensure our students are prepared for college level work as juniors. Our accelerated program offers the Associates of Arts, Associates of Science, Associates of Applied Science and several certificate programs in conjunction with a 5-year High School diploma. Many of our students excel due to the caring atmosphere we strive to create on our campus.

In an effort to support our students we have structured their semester by semester plans in a way that ensures students have the necessary prerequisites as we strive to "fill any gaps" in their learning early. Additionally, our guidance department has an excellent working relationship with the college side advisors who assists us in meeting the needs of students in an "on time" manner. While we understand that some struggle is good and can build competence, we do not want our students so stressed that it interferes with their potential success.

Building caring relationships, predicated on high expectations, is one key to our success as a school. When students and their families know that the school cares and is ready to offer on time support students succeed. This symbiotic relationship between the student, their family, the school, college, and the community at large serves as the proper milieu for generating successful American citizens.
