    At RISE Academy, we believe every student can rise and soar in the right environment and with the right support. Our mascot is the legendary Phoenix known for rising from the ashes. Our mantra is “Burn Blue!” because the bluest part of the flame is the most active and intense. Our goal is to ignite this flame in our students.


    We believe that our partnership with our parents and our community is crucially important and is the fuel to our flame. At RISE, students research and choose their college, career, or military path early. Our team will work with our families and our community to support them so their steps after high school are already paved before they walk across the stage and fly.


    We are committed to engaging students with relationships and boundaries based on respect and integrity, equipping them with academic knowledge and employability skills, and empowering them with the confidence and planning skills for a successful life. 


    I am truly honored to serve the students, parents, and community as the principal of RISE Academy. Please visit our website often for updates and announcements. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
