Descripción

Rise Academy is the East End’s own fully-accredited, private, Christian high school. Rise Academy is part of Rise Richmond, a nonprofit serving students and families in Richmond’s East End. Together with families, neighbors, and community partners, Rise Richmond is creating a world where students have access to excellent, equitable learning opportunities. Through Rise After School, Rise Academy, and Rise Labs, we offer supportive spaces where students can rise to new opportunities, pursue goals that once seemed out of reach, and exceed their expectations.

Rise Academy is committed to trauma-informed care; we seek instructors who view their students as whole people.
