MESSAGE FROM THE CEO/EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The 13th Annual RUA Celebrity Golf Classic incorporates a day of activities designed to
raise awareness and support for the invaluable Early Learning and After School programs
at the Greater Trinity Academy (now Rise Up Academy). The importance of the work that
we are doing is now greater than ever.
This is an exciting time for us as we prepare to launch an ambitious Capitol Campaign
project that will double the number of students that we are able to serve. The building
of our new school will allow us to reach more students at risk and provide additional
Educational Resources throughout Snohomish County and surrounding communities.
For the past 25 years we have catered to the underserved low-income and BIPOC
families and students, serving over 1,500 students. The ages range from 2 ½ - 6 years
of age, and a before and after school program for students between 6-12 years of age.
Our school is being recognized as the experts of Early Learning Education focusing on
preparing students for the public-school
Most of our students are from families with limited incomes. Currently, the difference between the actual cost of running our program averages more than $1,000 per child per month, more than the sliding tuition and the needs-based support provided by state and federal programs.
Please join us in a celebration of community service and help us educate more students for children who need a safe, structured educational environment with the confidence to say, “I Can Learn Anything!”
