Introducing RISE MicroSchools!

RISE MicroSchools connect families together to design in-person co-learning spaces that meet the individual needs of students. By developing a close-knit community, RISE Microschools propel students beyond the classroom and into deep, meaningful relationships with their peers and guides. RISE MicroSchools provide religious, social and academic enrichment programs. We focus on supporting families in developing these co-learning spaces to assist with student formation, family well-being, and academic success.

I am very impressed by the team’s efforts and effectiveness. I am appreciative of this opportunity to have Shia education as I don’t live close to a Shia school.

 [The staff] have all mA been so wonderful and accommodating, ensuring our needs are met, and that we are content, and everything is basically answered for us[…]This great idea of an online faith based regular full-time school with a focus on the Shia beliefs is highly commendable, and is a matter of pride for our Community
