Welcome to Rise Academy

Welcome to RISE Academy where we believe in Second Chances…New Beginnings!  We take great pride in our alternative program and are thrilled about the opportunity to work with you and your child.

At RISE Academy, we expect our students to follow our PBIS expectations of Being Respectful, Responsible, and Remarkable.  Our staff is excited and dedicated to meeting the needs of our students while providing them with a rewarding experience.

The mission of RISE Academy is to provide a safe, supportive, and compassionate environment that promotes self-discipline and self-confidence while offering assistance to students who are transitioning to their base school, college, or career.

We look forward to empowering our students with skills necessary for them to become academically, behaviorally, and socially successful and responsible.   

Again, welcome and thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your child as we strive to excel.
