Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does The Rising School charge tuition?
A: No. As a public charter school, we don’t charge any tuition. We provide a private-school quality education, where tuition costs several thousands dollars per year, at no charge to our students and parents.
Q: Is there a test that students must pass to gain admission to The Rising School?
A: No. The Rising School is an open-enrollment school, so any eligible student who has completed our admissions paperwork and submitted it to us by our deadline will be registered as a student.
Students will take diagnostic tests so that our teachers can properly assess our incoming students. But the baseline test is not used for admissions purposes, and no one can “fail” a baseline test and be kept out of The Rising School because of his/her performance on the test.
Q: Is my admission to The Rising School guaranteed if I’m an eligible student?
A: Yes, unless the school has reached its full capacity of students. The Rising School is an open-enrollment school, so any eligible student who has completed our admissions paperwork and submitted it to us by our deadline will be registered as a student.
If we reach full capacity before May 31, 2014, we will conduct a lottery to determine which students are enrolled and which are on our waiting list.
Q: Does the school have a nondiscrimination policy?
A: Yes, The Rising School (TRS) and Rising School, Inc., (RSI) are committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in relation to race, color, religion/religious beliefs, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, creed, citizenship status, marital status, disability, home language, family, social or cultural background. This policy will prevail in all matters concerning staff members, students, the public, educational programs and services, and individuals with whom RSI and TRS do business.
