Help high school students reach their full potential

High school is a time filled with change. Whether students are planning to enroll in college, serve in the military, or enter the workforce after graduation, make sure each student is on track toward being their absolute best.

Are your students prepared to take the ACT or SAT?

Taking the ACT or SAT is a big event, and the outcome has a huge impact on students’ future plans. It’s critical to know as soon as possible which students are on track to graduate and are prepared for the challenges ahead and which ones need additional help. Renaissance Star Reading® and Renaissance Star Math® are linked to the ACT college admissions test for English, reading, and mathematics, as well as the SAT college admissions test for evidence-based reading and writing (ERW) and mathematics, so you can check students’ progress toward key benchmarks. This provides not just performance insights, but a chance to correct and shift a student’s course if needed.

School ends—reading never does

Reading is an essential task for people of all ages and walks of life.

Together, Renaissance Accelerated Reader®, Renaissance myON Reader™, and Star Reading help build those essential skills and promote a growth mindset through goals, a rich collection of different fiction and nonfiction, and detailed student feedback.

Show-me results: Missouri HS reading program yields fast, double-digit proficiency gains

Skeptics might argue that fixing a school’s chronically poor reading scores takes years, not months. But at Northwest High School in Hughesville, Missouri, a determined community of educators, students, and parents implemented a reading assessment and intensive intervention program that produced double-digit proficiency gains in just two and a half months.

Build students’ math skills—and confidence

As high school students tackle tough, complex problems, they need rich and personalized support. Renaissance Accelerated Math® provides personalized practice for tough topics like Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. The problems in Accelerated Math help students build incremental confidence—whether they realize it or not. Once students feel confident, they open up to mathematical discourse in the classroom and productive struggle in their practice. Meanwhile, you gain access to a wealth of data, providing a snapshot into what skills students are tackling, built-in resource ideas, and insight into which questions are giving students trouble.


Did you know high school math predicts college graduation, postsecondary degrees, and career earnings?

It’s true! In fact, one report that examined the long-term outcomes of thousands of students across the United States found clear connections between the highest level of math completed by the end of high school and the highest degree of education attained 10 years later.
