GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
River's Edge Academy students need 25 credits to meet graduation requirements. We meet the Minnesota Department of Education requirements for graduation, and we exceed them. If a student plans to graduate from River's Edge Academy, they must meet our graduation requirements to earn a diploma.

STUDENT LEADERSHIP CREW
The REA Student Leadership Crew (SLC) members work together to develop a standard of leadership for the school by having a positive attitude, being focused, working together as a team, and giving back to the REA community.

These students represent our community as leaders, creating service learning opportunities, social events, 
and leadership training. The SLC members represent the REA community values in class, crew, and community.
All SLC students sign a contract at the beginning of the year and work together
 to stay accountable to their commitments.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR SLC?
    •    Students who represent REA values in class, crew, & community
    •    Students who want to make a difference in the REA community
    •    Students who maintain 90% attendance
    •    Students who are passing all of their classes
    •    Students who maintain positive behavior

Students are placed in a section based on their grade, academic performance, and understanding of the concepts. The goal is that students are successful, yet challenged in their academic section. 

Sections are named after parts of the river.
