Welcome to STRIVE Prep - RISE

STRIVE Prep - RISE will develop young adults to become critical thinking lifelong learners ready to solve 21st–century problems.  We empower our scholars to be social justice focused community members who are compassionate and responsible.  Our scholars will rise into global leaders ready to challenge societal inequities.  We will meet scholars right where they are, challenging, encouraging and supporting them with tools and resources to push them beyond the limits of their previous achievements.  Our intensive college preparatory curriculum will include mandatory AP Coursework and graduation requirements that exceed the Colorado Department of Higher Education requirements for scholars entering four-year colleges and universities.  All scholars will wear a simple uniform of professional dress to ensure respect for self and others and diminish social stress.

Like each of our sister schools, will work hard to make good on two promises to families: 1) We’ll keep your child safe, and 2) We’ll prepare your child for the opportunities and challenges of college.
