R.I.S.E. After School Program is located in Atlanta, Georgia inside of Charles R. Drew Charter School. Started in 2000, RISE is a comprehensive after school program for PreK - 5th grade students operating from 3:45pm to 6:00pm daily.
The program includes academic, recreational and athletic activities which are designed to supplement and enrich students’ learning during the day time. Students are divided into groups by grade levels so they can participate in activities with their peers. Each week, participants in the program receive two days of academic support, two days of enrichment classes and one day to work on special projects with their peers. We currently offer 33 unique enrichment classes including Scratch, Gardening, Cooking & Nutrition, Golf, Tennis, Computer Science, Soccer, Martial Arts, Jazz Dance, Chess, Etiquette, Virtual Reality, and French.
