Tuition and Fees for 2023-2024 School Year
Based on current Rise enrollment, the total cost to educate each student is over $20,000 yearly. The difference between Rise’s tuition/fee receipts and the cost to operate the school is covered by fundraising, parent volunteerism, grants and the generous financial support of the Rise community and its friends around the Coastal Bend. We are incredibly grateful to all those who volunteer and give, which allows Rise to continue providing a superior inclusive education at a competitive price.
