RISE Plans Partnership with DCPS, Including Targeting the Class of 2021

Thanks to your support of our summer programs, the District of Columbia Public Schools and RISE have begun discussions to provide summer enrichment programs for every high school in Wards 5, 7, and 8. After six years of working in the neighborhood schools, this would be the first time DCPS and RISE will partner on a program. You can feel good that your early support of our summer programming has resulted in this partnership.

Our summer math programs have often served as non-credit enrichment classes, but since 2014 we have provided students with an opportunity to take algebra II during the summer for credit. By taking these accredited summer algebra II classes, our students can eventually take Advanced Placement calculus during senior year.
