Aimed at teaching to the whole child, the RCAAS is the perfect place for students to explore, grow, and pursue excellence in Arts and Academics!
What is the RCAAS?
RCAAS uses innovative instruction, individual talent development model, as well as an arts integration curriculum to meet the needs of each student! This 3rd through 6th grade program is a full-day integrated service for students gifted and emerging in academics and/or the arts. We have been educating gifted learners in Sandusky since 2013. We will move our 2020-2021 programs to the former Adams Building. This historic building lies in the heart of downtown Sandusky, full of rich arts and culture.

The purpose of RCAAS is to provide a world class education for students gifted or at promise in the Specific Academic Areas and/or the Visual and Performing Arts and Creative Thinking Ability.
The DORN Fellowship Series
The DORN Fellowship Series was created in an effort to connect college faculty with gifted students. College professors from different disciplines are selected to design and develop curriculum throughout our K-12 gifted services. The generous donation from the DORN Foundation funds instruction and field trips that foster hands-on learning in a project-based format.
