My sister and I have been trying to find the title of a book that we read in the 80s with no luck. I'll and describe the plot from what we can remember. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The book takes place on a desert planet where there is some sort of an academy. The two main characters are a human male and a female that we are pretty sure isn't human, we remember her being much taller than the guy and possibly having a different skin color?

In order to graduate from the academy the students have to leave the school and survive for a while on the planet. Both characters are sent on their trial at the same time and while they are gone the school is destroyed by bad aliens.

At some point we think the female character gets captured by the bad aliens and the guy rescues her. Anyone remember this book? My sister seems to think that the female character's name was Risa, but she's not sure of the spelling. I don't remember that and searching using that name found nothing.

Does anyone remember this book? It's driving us crazy that we can't find it! :)
