History of RISE Education System

The RISE Education System was founded in 2009 with the establishment of R.I.S.E. Academy (formerly known as SABA Academy), a non-profit, full-time K-12 Islamic school located in San Jose, California. With the help of Allah, the school has continued to flourish, and as of 2021, the Academy graduated two 12th grade classes. In the fall of 2020, RISE Online, a fully online K-12 schooling option, was established as a second member of the RISE Education System. And in the fall of 2021, RISE East Bay, the third school and second in-person campus of the RISE Education System, was established in Hayward, California.
