About the Holden Rural Academy

The Holden Rural Academy is a public charter school, approved by the Minister of Education in July 2022. We offer Place-Based Education to grade 7 – 12 students – where learning takes place in the classroom and in the community.

After a morning devoted to core courses, students will be able to choose from a variety of projects, many of them off-campus.

Our staff work together with students and families to develop an education plan that has clear expectations for academic achievement, and helps students develop career goals.

What kind of curriculum and options will be available?
