Reedley implements the unique Reedley Synergized Learning Approach (RSLA) by synergizing the best practices of the progressive and traditional approach.

Our academic curriculum has a set of routines, structures, and standards in place . We teach Life Skills , study habits, memory strategies, test-taking skills, and problem solving so that our students know how to think critically, decide soundly, and apply knowledge in practical and real-life situations.

Our teachers nurture our students by giving personalized attention and guidance . We teach literacy, numeracy, and the humanities without focusing on rote learning, but by removing the boundaries between these subjects and creating connections within them.

In synergizing progressive and traditional approaches, RSLA aims to nurture each student to become successful, and yet compassionate and kind , in any role, relationship, or situation in life; exemplifying excellence and prudence at heart, in mind, and in spirit.

2. Small Class Program (SCP) - This program is available for levels Junior High 7-10, with a maximum of 10 students per class. SCP is for students who need the necessary study skills to succeed in a big classroom. SCP is a scaffolding program that will help students to excel academically given personalized attention, strict monitoring, and proper guidance. More often than not, SCP students, when moved to a larger class size, receive academic honors and awards regularly.

3. Center for Individualized Academic Program (CIAP)- CIAP is one of Reedley’s support programs which follows the school's implemented academic curriculum. CIAP students benefit from the individualized approach of the program, which focuses on the four core subjects: English Language Arts; Mathematics; Science; and Social Studies. For the minor subjects, CIAP students join students in the Big Class Program (BCP) under the supervision of CIAP teachers.

CIAP addresses the diverse learning needs of students who have difficulties in learning from mainstream classes. CIAP's small class size allows teachers to implement specific learning interventions to high-functioning students with mild conditions of learning disability, speech delay, and ADD/ADHD.

CIAP and its students are governed by Reedley's Code of Discipline and the Child Protection Policy wherein the School has Zero tolerance for any act of child or peer abuse, exploitation, violence, discrimination, bullying, and any other forms of harm.

4. English as a Second Language (ESL) is an English Enrichment Program being offered to applicants who are non-native English speakers.
