The overall strategy is helping Students ages 10-19 learn to view school work and standardized test-taking as a competitive game, see themselves as part of winning teams and learn to excel in the classroom and on the playing courts/fields. Rising Stars concentrates on the whole student and takes a Social and Emotional Learning perspective. That means kids learn to set and achieve positive goals, learn and apply new skills and attitudes, manage their emotions and feel empathy for others. Furthermore, they learn to maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions.
Our students will compete year-round both academically and athletically. This comprehensive experience will allow our students to participate in a variety of seasonal sports including football, lacrosse, and basketball; all the while they will compete academically online and in the classroom.
