RISE Prep Mayoral Academy
- Rhode Island
RISE Prep Mayoral Academy is a college preparatory K-8 public charter school located in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, where college preparation begins in kindergarten. Approved by the Rhode Island Board of Education in October 2014, RISE Prep opened our doors to our inaugural class of kindergarteners in September 2015. To ensure excellence and quality as RISE Prep grows, RISE Prep follows a slow growth model and will grow one grade each year until it reaches its full K-8 enrollment. In the 2018-19 school year, RISE Prep will educate scholars in grades K-3. Through a rigorous curriculum, highly structured learning environment, and character education RISE Prep Mayoral Academy ensures that all Kindergarten through 8th grade scholars achieve the academic skills, content knowledge, and character required for the path to college.
RISE Prep joins Rhode Island Mayoral Academies in establishing intentionally diverse schools that enroll from both urban and suburban communities. We believe that part of our mission is to teach the importance and value of diversity within classrooms and communities. RISE Prep curriculum includes character education and community engagement in our model to ensure habits of service, helping, and kindness are fostered within our scholars to shape engaged and caring members of their communities.
