STRIVE Prep - RISE develops young adults to become critical thinking lifelong learners ready to solve 21st-century problems. Our school is social justice-focused and empowers our students to be community members who are compassionate and responsible. We run verbal assessments each quarter to prepare our scholars to be able to talk through ideas, use evidence, and evaluate their own ideas not only while they are students here, but also in a college setting, and beyond. We prepare scholars to be successful in college and also have alumni advisors whose sole purpose is to continue to support your student once they reach college. We assume the best of our students, we support them through tough times, and we support your scholar taking a lead both on and off-campus.
