Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year.My name is Chad Greendale, Blessed Principal of REACH Academy, and I would like to welcome everyone to REACH Academy. As the principal, I am excited to introduce you to our uniwue and innovative approach to learning. Our program is designed to meet the needs of students who may have struggled in traditional school settings or are seeking an alternative to the traditional high school experience. Our dedicated staff is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our curriculum is challenging and engaging, and our goal is to prepare our students for success in college, career, and life.I am honored to be working at REACH Academy. I have over 20 years’ experience working as an Educational Professional. During that time, I have worked as an Coach, Site Director, Teacher, Dean, Vice Principal, and Principal, working with at-risk youth, grades 6th through 12th.
It has truly been my calling to work in education. Every day I have an unyielding, unapologetic approach for student success. I truly believe working with at-risk is not only shaping communities but SAVING lives. My approach in working with at-risk students is trauma informed, student centered, and one that creates a second chance at success. The learning community (staff, students and parents) does this by having caring relationships, providing an alternative method of teaching, learning, intervention and prevention, safe and healthy environments, and collaborative partners. By having those key ingredients, we all meet the unique educational, social, physical, and emotional needs of these diverse students we serve.
At REACH, we believe that every student has the potential to succeed, and we are committed to helping each and every one of our students REACH their full potential. We look forward to working with you and your family to help achieve your academic and personal goals.
I am beyond honored and excited for the 2023-2024 School year. It is going to be a great year with many new opportunities for student success.
