​About Us

Our Mission

Jefferson RISE Charter School prepares all scholars to succeed in four-year colleges and professional careers.

Our History

Founded by seven community members and Head of School, Kathleen Sullivan, Jefferson RISE received its authorization from Jefferson Parish School Board in the fall of 2014. Within a year, the vision became a reality, as Jefferson RISE opened its doors in August 2015 to 120 sixth grade students. Growing by one grade per year, Jefferson RISE now serves 700+ students in grades 6-12.
