- The Hub and H2O: High school programs offer students at Juanita Sanchez High School, 360 High School and Hope High School access to programming provided by a variety of Providence organizations, teachers, and community-based educators. Students can dive into existing interests or explore new ones. Each program is offered outside of the school day, in multi-week sessions, giving students time for deep learning and the opportunity to build lasting relationships with the adults who guide them in their learning.
- The Advanced Coursework Network (ACN): A statewide initiative launched in January 2016 by Governor Raimondo in order to provide every high school youth in Rhode Island an opportunity to enroll in a mix of college level, AP, and credit-bearing expanded learning opportunity (ELO) courses through a single statewide course catalog. PASA offers credit-bearing, work-based learning courses though the ACN catalog.
