Austin Rising High is a 3 day a week (Tuesday-Thursday) homeschooling co-op high school where students find deep and meaningful experiences. We use project-based learning to give students the opportunity to pursue their interests, work with peers through Socratic discussions, and tackle real-world challenges, all while providing the necessary resources and support for their social and emotional growth. We understand that academic achievement and emotional well-being are closely linked, so we strive to equip our students with the skills, empathy, and self-awareness they need to succeed in all areas of their lives. We value each student as an individual learner, recognizing that everyone learns differently, and we celebrate these 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.

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!
