• Renaissance Academy has many services available during the school day to all students and their families. In certain instances, these services may be required for you and your student. The Student Services Team is comprised of the guidance counselor, the mental health counselor, the school nurse, the Intensive Support System instructor, and the Resource teacher. We work together as a team to meet the needs of every student. Here's how we do that:
