At Rising Star Academy, our mission is to inspire and prepare students to always have the courage to reach for their dreams.
We strive to instill in our children a love of learning, an intellectual curiosity, and a sense of duty to the community that will enable them to make thoughtful and morally informed decisions throughout their lives.
We believe that a true education encompasses all aspects of a child's life; therefore, we aim to provide our students with experiences that develop their intellectual, moral, social and physical growth.
Our goal is to foster our students to have confidence and be leaders while holding fast to the ideals of Islam.
We promote the virtues of modesty, justice, and integrity while developing knowledge, faith and leadership.
