About RNY

  • Ready Now Yuma is a unique, student-centered initiative of Yuma Union High School District and Helios Education Foundation with the goals of:

    1. Graduating every YUHSD student prepared to succeed in college and career

    2. Embedding a high expectations, college-going culture within the district

    3. Increasing the number of students entering and succeeding in postsecondary education including career and technical education, community college, and university

    We are providing YUHSD students with a rigorous, high expectations program of study within a college-going environment. Regardless of past academic performance or post-high school aspirations, Ready Now Yuma is designed to challenge and support every student on the path to college and career readiness.

    Ready Now Yuma is aligned with the highest national and international standards, including Arizona’s Common Core Standards and is designed to help students at all grade levels master valuable skills and knowledge in demand by employers, colleges, and our community.

    Ready Now Yuma is unique because it makes a world-class education available to every student - opening the door to opportunities for our students, our state, and the Greater Yuma region.
