Why Austin Rising School?
Austin Rising School is a 3 day a week (Tuesday-Thursday) homeschooling co-op high school where students find deep and meaningful experiences. We inspire learning through a hands-on, project based approach. It is always purposeful, thoughtful, and engaging; fostering collaboration. We respect every student as an individual learner, knowing that there is no one way to learn, but rather every student learns differently and we celebrate those differences.
Students learn to be innovators, curious about the world around them and excellent self advocates. We focus on creating integrative learning opportunities to help students apply what they have learned to real life experiences by increasing their skill base and helping them build through their challenges. Our unique approach to learning prepares students to have successful experiences in their life journey post high school.
Our students are challenged and prepared for the world beyond high school; whether that be college, entrepreneurial endeavors or other paths, we prepare them to be successful world citizens.
Love of Learning
As Mercier said "what we learn with pleasure, we never forget". This is our goal; to foster a love of learning in each student to motivate them to achieve their very best.
Intentional Small Classes
Small class sizes allows for personalized attention.
Project Based Learning
Project based learning allows students to dig deeper and gain a well rounded understanding of the topic.

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT ARS
ARS has been a blessing and pivotal point in our child’s education. The way that the lessons are structured has helped them learn more in depth and really understand the material and get excited about it. The community and “family feel” is fantastic at ARS, so my children have always felt comfortable attending and open to learning and growing. We value the smaller class size (it translates into more concentrated attention and knowledge) and love the teachers passion and spunk for teaching them. We owe gratitude to them for such a wonderful, safe learning environment.
Austin Rising School has been such a gift to our family. It's not just a school, but also a supportive and nurturing community. My daughter Akyra learned many exciting things over the past school year. The hands-on, project and activity based format fully engaged her.
My daughter has been attending Austin Rising for the past 8 years and it truly is an amazing school. The teachers are top notch and the way they teach is so creative and engaging. The project based learning, ending each unit with a project presentation of their acquired knowledge of the topic, is a fantastic way to engage students fully in the learning experience. We love ARS!
