Advanced Coursework Network

The Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) has developed the Advanced Coursework Network to ensure that all students have access to high quality coursework that will allow them to pursue their interests and prepare them for success after high school. The Advanced Coursework Network is a statewide course access system that gives students choices beyond what is available at their high school. Through state funding, schools can seamlessly expand course opportunities for their students at no additional cost to students, families or the district. The options available to schools and students will be offered through high quality, state-approved course providers, with possibilities ranging from local industry training programs to advanced courses at Rhode Island’s colleges and universities.

Registration for courses is offered on a  first come first serve basis, and begins on Monday 3-21-16. Please review the catalog listed below for more information.

Students should work with their school guidance counselors to identify appropriate coursework. Once coursework is identified, students, families or guidance counselors may complete the registration form below. Students are not fully enrolled in the course until they and their counselor receive a confirmation email from the course provider.
