The Accelerated Reading Program (AR) is a reading comprehension program designed to monitor student’s comprehension while encouraging them to read. Students take the STAR test to determine their reading level. Each student is given a goal to work towards. As each student reads a book on their reading level and takes a test they are given points toward their goal.

Renaissance Home Connect is designed for parents to be involved by connecting from home to make personalized reading practice even more effective. By using Home Connect, students and parents are able to:

  • See progress towards reading goal.
  • Review AR quiz results.
  • View number of books read.
