The mission of the Renaissance Academy Charter School (RACS) ESL Program is to ensure academic achievement for all English Language Learners by equipping them with the language skills necessary to function comparably to their Native-English peers in academic and social situations. This mission will empower all ELL students to be successful in their academic careers and as members of society. The ELL program will serve as a support system for the ELL until he/she is able to achieve independent academic success. It is our mission to involve all educators, family members, and our community in the education of our ELLs as we recognize helping them find the paths to success is all of our responsibility.
