Thanks to Smolak Farms for hosting our first field trip of the year on Friday October 29.  We had a great time going on a hay ride, apple picking, and sampling some cider donuts.

As we embark on the new school year we are delighted to inform you that Rise Academy has a new location!  As a result of COVID-19 school doors are not open to the public just yet, but we are very fortunate to be able to provide a new spacious learning environment for our students and families. Our goal this year is to give students the best education no matter the circumstances. Our new location has a large number of windows, an HVAC system that provides heat and air conditioning with exterior ventilation, and enough space to be able to follow all COVID related protocols.  


Our new address is 530 Broadway Street in Lawrence, Massachusetts.  Contact info can be found under the About section on this website.

RISE staff dropped off chromebooks, Market Basket gift cards, and diapers and wipes to students last Friday, making sure to follow all social distance protocols.  Most of the students were excited to get their chromebooks if they were unable to make it to school to get one.   Many thanks to some of our community partners for helping to support our students during this difficult time, including Mona Igram from the Youth Advocacy Division and recently retired Judge Newman!
