Ridgeland High School operates under the concept of academization. Every student is a member of an educational academy: Cyber Academy, College and Career Academy, Freshman Academy, Honors Academy, Sophomore Academy, and STEM Academy. Each academy strives to build relationships and offer flexible options to meet the learning needs and goals of all students. The educational focus is to teach the curriculum at a high level of academic rigor, and customize learning by providing remediation, enrichment, and acceleration.
