Welcome to STRIVE Prep - RISE

Together we RISE!

Happy New Year! We are halfway through the year and it is a great time to re-engage in your scholar’s learning path. Attached to this newsletter is your scholar’s report card. Please note: we no longer have year long grades. The grades you see are FINAL and will appear on your scholar’s transcript. Please look over your scholar’s report card. Anything that has an A, B, or C next to it, your scholar will get credit towards the 240 credits needed to graduate high school. If you see an F next to any course, your scholar is off track towards graduation and will have to repeat the course in order to progress forward.

Our attendance has hovered around 92% for first semester, and this semester we want it well above 95%. Please make sure that your scholar is present everyday.

On a very personal note, our school will never ask and is not legally able to ask if scholars are undocumented or not. However, if your scholar is undocumented and you have questions about how to afford college and what steps may be different for your scholar in the application process, please reach out to us and we will then be able to properly assist your scholar in achieving their dreams confidentially.
