Student Highlights

Students are our life work; we recognize and applaud their creativity, achievement and growth. These various organizations and activities are devoted to cultivating the leadership, scholarship and character of our student body.

Choose Your Own Adventure: Pathways to Success Videos

At Rivendell Academy we are working with our students on developing goals, plans, and visions for their lives after graduation. We felt that stories from interesting people could inspire them to think about options for their futures. So, we invited 14 interesting people to come to RA for the day to share their stories with students. We called the day, "Choose Your Own Adventure: Pathways to Success."

This summer two groups of 7th and 8th grade students created two videos about the careers of two of our Choose Your Own Adventure Day speakers: furniture maker Charles Shackleton and Miranda Thomas, potter. These first-time filmmakers learned about camera angles, interviewing, editing and more. Teachers Chris White, Nate Cutting, Autumn Brooks, Amber Brooks and John Bristol helped students learn the technical skills necessary to make these documentaries. We hope you enjoy their work!

Maxwell Green used advanced mathematics to create an optical illusion.

Maxwell taped lines on the floor and walls of a classroom that are of various slants and thicknesses. However, when viewed from a particular spot, the lines appear to form a perfect square. To calculate where to draw the lines, Maxwell taught himself vector math.
