St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) serves as the “Authorizing Agency” for several unique public school academies.


Academies chartered by RESA have missions to serve a student population in ways not found in the traditional public school district.


The academies are provided oversight through the Chief Administrative Officer and the Academy Business Office. Directors for each academy manage the day-to-day operations.
