The Rose Tree Media Simon Youth Academy (RTM SYA) program gives students a chance to take charge of their educational experience. Our program allows students to work alongside teachers and peers on a daily basis using a combination of small group and computer-based instruction. RTM SYA provides a non-traditional high school setting that gives students the same education they would receive in a traditional classroom, but in a flexible environment that emphasizes one-on-one learning, personalized support and small class sizes led by compassionate teachers.
The Simon Youth Foundation (SYF), is a national nonprofit headquartered in Indianapolis, and is committed to helping students graduate. SYF believes that all young people, no matter their personal circumstances, should have the opportunity to pursue their dreams through education.
In partnership with local public school districts, the Simon Youth Foundation creates high schools called Simon Youth Academies, through which students at risk of dropping out receive the personalized support needed to earn their diplomas. Primarily located in Simon Malls, Simon Youth Academies make learning accessible to students who struggle to connect with instructional content in a traditional classroom or school because of serious illness, trauma, bullying, or other challenging personal circumstances.
