Scholars come to THRIVE Academy at many different levels. We test and test them and meticulously track their progress from kindergarten to college. It starts on the first day of summer school.
Two teachers in every room means students have more direct instruction. They may be both lead teaching, pulling small groups, or working in one-on-one settings with a specific student.
Students are tested on a national norm-referenced test called the MAP. This tells us if our students are on-track with their peers across the country (starting in Kindergarten).
We have specialized instruction for students who are struggling with specific skills, whether they have an IEP or not. If they are struggling with phonemic awareness, they will work with a teacher to develop that skill, even if the rest of the class has mastered it.
Developing the whole child
To us, education goes beyond academics. That's why we teach classes on character education, build strong routines from kindergarten through fourth grade, and create systems to keep parents and students informed about their behavioral progress.

Nice Words from Our Families
The teachers' involvement with my child's education doesn't stop when they get out of school.
The teachers are always willing to stay after and help. It's great that someone besides me wants to push my child to be the best they can be.
Rise Academy Parent
Great school system. They have groomed my children for bright futures.
Alexa, TEAM Academy Parent
I would highly recommend anyone putting their child here, because I saw my son become an A/B student at Rise Academy.
Denice, Rise Academy Parent
Shout out to Ms. Boston for making phonics fun! The scholars were very engaged and I encourage more parents/grandparents to take a peek!
