It was originally located at 881 Alma Real Drive, in Pacific Palisades, California, and its final location was 5431 West 98th Street, 1 mile east of Los Angeles International Airport and half a mile from the city of Inglewood. RA High first opened in September 2004, in a suburban office building in Pacific Palisades, and lost its charter in July 2006. Renaissance Academy has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. This school has served in students grades 9-12 from all over Los Angeles county, while most of its students resided in Topanga Canyon, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Venice and West Los Angeles.

Renaissance Academy was formed by a group of teachers, parents, captains of industry and administrators from Palisades High School and surrounding areas. They were unsatisfied with the performance of public high schools and decided to create a new charter school.
