Welcome to STRIVE Prep - RISE

Together we RISE!

Welcome back to the 17-18 school year. As we move into our 2nd year in our new beautiful campus, we are excited to continue to build on the solid academic culture set by our current 10th graders as we welcome in our 9th graders to their first year of high school.  We also open our Multi-Intensive Center this year, and are excited about our inclusive campus that truly serves the needs of ALL scholars.

This year we expanded our elective offerings for scholars to include Cottonwood (outdoor education), drama, speech and debate, French and Spanish.

Please note we will not hold an orientation this year, and instead will hold a mandatory back to school night (snacks and babysitters provided) on Tuesday September 26th from 4:30 - 5:45pm. Please bring all of your questions for our staff on that night, and if you have anything before then, please feel free to come to our campus any time, or call our main office to get your needs met.

We look forward to our shared accountability of learning for scholars to maximize their potential this year. Together we will encourage scholars to own their progress and take hold of their educational journey, with all of our support. Finally, we want to make sure our scholars are developing a love of literature and will expect them to complete nightly reading - from a book of their choice. With your support, scholars will have no limits!

Thank you,
Elisha Roberts
