Frequently Asked Questions

How are scholars selected?

Enrollment is based on a random, public lottery.  Children residing in Woonsocket, North Smithfield, and Burrillville are welcome to apply for the RISE Prep lottery.  RISE Prep, like all charter schools in Rhode Island, is a FREE and PUBLIC school that is open to ALL students, regardless of prior academic achievement, special education need, or primary language.

Who is eligible to apply?

Enrollment applications for Kindergarten-Fifth Grade for the 2020-21 school year will become available in mid-October 2019. Each year, we welcome a new class of kindergarten scholars. The number of open seats for 1st-5th grade will depend on the number of current scholars who return next year.

How do I apply to enroll my child?

To apply, please complete the application form. Applications may be submitted in one of three ways:

In person – Drop the application off at 30 Cumberland Street, Woonsocket RI, 02895

Online – Check back in mid-October 2019 for the online application.

By mail – Mail the application to our school at the address above.

Submit your application by Friday, February 21, 2020 by 5:00PM to have your child's name entered into the lottery for the 2020-21 school year.

When is the lottery? How do I know how my child does in the lottery?

Our lottery will be held on Monday, March 2, 2020. Following the lottery, the school will contact all families of their application status through SchoolMint.

If my child does not get in, what happens?

All children not accepted will be placed on a waiting list for the grade they applied.  You only need to apply once per school year. Please make sure to let RISE Prep know if your contact information changes so that we can get in touch with you should a spot open up.
