The old system at the previous comprehensive high school funneled many underperforming students into GED programs, vocational classes, and remedial tracks. Only the most elite students were allowed access to more advanced courses. However, CRA’s leaders rejected this system of sorting and stratification, and the school requires no GPA or test-score cutoffs for students to be eligible to take challenging courses (including AP classes offered on campus and others offered online). CRA also eliminated the old lower-track classes, ensuring that all students have access to a college-preparatory curriculum. Further, the school is careful to design its master schedule with access in mind so that scheduling conflicts don’t prevent students from taking rich and rigorous courses.
Doctoral Graduation Dates :
Henceforth, all students intending to graduate in the Spring or in the Fall should formally secure a confirmed dissertation defense date that falls no later than 2 (TWO) weeks after midterm of the semester in which they plan to graduate. Therefore, you must make sure that your dissertation chair, in consultation with the committee members, have formally approved your readiness for defense. Please note that this deadline will apply until we notify you of any changes; no exceptions will be accommodated. Plan accordingly as you must have a very good quality draft of the complete dissertation, in the semester prior to the planned graduation one.
