Principal's Message

Welcome to Academy of the Redwoods, an early college high school housed on the College of the Redwoods campus. AR offers a blend of high school and college courses designed to challenge our students’ academic needs. We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive, respectful, and diverse community where students of all backgrounds are primed to thrive academically and socially. Our highly qualified faculty and staff provide students with exceptional learning opportunities, thus prompting creative and critical thinkers and learners.


Believing our motto: Respect, Responsibility, Choice, we encourage students to embrace responsibility and cultivate respect for themselves and the community. Student choice, as it pertains to each individual’s academic path, is an integral and valuable part of the AR experience. AR prepares students in our program for the academic rigor of college which in turn prepares them for any and all career aspirations.


 I am honored to serve as your principal. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me, and know that my door is always open.
