Course Offerings

Raisbeck Aviation High School was founded on the belief that it is possible to prepare you for the rigors of college work and the performance demands of a high-tech, global workplace. We are convinced you learn best when you can explore, investigate, analyze, reflect, perform, debate, work with others, solve problems, build, design, test ideas, visit places, and talk with experts and mentors.

We also believe you are more likely to think and work hard when you are passionate about the context in which learning takes place—aviation and aerospace. Flight inspires all of us who work here. We use the theme to focus and integrate the curriculum, and we hope to engage your mind and heart in learning that matters to you. We believe we can best support your growth and attainment of learning goals through the individual attention and relationships that are possible in a small learning community.
