Welcome to Phoenix-Talent School District's newest school: the Phoenix-Talent Rising Academy! The PTRA was originally created in 2020 as a virtual option for students to attend classes in the district remotely as a response to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Now that program has been reconstituted as its own school, offering a hybrid of in-person and remote learning opportunities that can be tailored to any family's health, location, and travel needs!
PTRA Registration Information 2021-22
If you are a parent interested in registering your student to attend the Phoenix-Talent Rising Academy, please click on the link at the top of this homepage in the yellow banner to begin that process.
Please be aware that if your student is new to our school district (meaning they have never attended any of our elementary schools or the middle school), you will need to select the "New Students" link. From there, you will be able to select PTRA as your intended enrollment school.
If your student has attended one of our district schools in the past, you will need to select the "Returning Students" link from that page. In that case, you will not be given an option of which school to select for enrollment. You will need to contact the office staff at the school your student would otherwise be attending and request to have them transferred to PTRA. Please contact PTRA principal Aaron Santi at 541-897-5107 if you have any questions about this process.
PTRA Technology Information
Our students access their virtual schooling via the Google suite of apps and equipment. If you have your own computer and/or laptop at home, you are free to have your student use your equipment. However, if you need to borrow a Chromebook from the school district to support your student's learning, we are happy to provide one for your student's use. We also have a limited number of Wifi hotspots for family use if internet accessibility is an issue. We are committed to ensuring that access to the internet will not be a barrier for any family who wants to access the PTRA.
While PTRA is largely a virtual school, we do offer some hybrid, in-person learning and socializing opportunities for our students and their parents. Our physical location is housed at Phoenix Elementary School in Room 29. If you are planning to visit us in person, please check in with the Phoenix Elementary School office staff and they can direct you to our classroom. Phoenix Elementary is located at 215 N. Rose St. in Phoenix, OR.
