We Can. We Will. RISE
RISE – it’s what we ask of our students, our parents, and our staff every day. It’s not a slogan. It’s not a motto. It’s a belief that, together, we can accomplish more than apart. Rise is how our students recognize the greatness within themselves and how we unlock that greatness to help students achieve their highest potential.
Our work is supported by so many great people and organizations, in Chicago and beyond. This is a small sample of the many partner organizations with which we work to provide a range of rigorous academic and robust enrichment experiences for our students.
