Greetings, Students, Parents, and Community:
With immense excitement and anticipation, I welcome you to the Alfred Rush Academy (ARA) for the 2022-2023 school year!
ARA is home to four programs designed to promote student growth academically, socially, and emotionally; Rise Academy, Soar Academy (formerly Flex and GFA), Pace’s Reach program, and most recently, Clinical Day. These programs help motivated, independent learners earn accelerated course credits and are perfect for learners who work best in a smaller classroom environment.
From the time of enrollment, every decision is to promote student success by tailoring a plan to meet students’ needs. We serve students who have experienced past barriers to teaching and learning that have resulted in low academic self-esteem, low social esteem, or related services that may have impacted or hindered the learning process. This tailored plan for student success is the direct result of a collaborative effort between the student, parent(s)/guardian(s), school personnel, and community stakeholders.
The faculty and staff at ARA are dynamic, reflective practitioners with growth mindsets to perfect their craft of teaching and learning. We value our community and seek to provide a rich, supportive, and joyful school environment. Our teachers can teach anywhere, but they’ve decided to join the Alfred Rush Academy family.
Again, welcome to THE Alfred Rush Academy, the home of the Phoenix!
Mr. Christopher A. Coleman
