Welcome to Rise! We are so happy you have chosen to learn more about how our inclusive and enriched program can give your child the best possible start in life. If you have any questions about our admissions process, please contact us.


Complete an Interest Form

If you are interested in enrolling your child in The Rise School of Austin for the 2020-2021 or 2021-2022 school year, or if you would like to learn more about our program, please complete an interest form and provide us with a little bit of information about you and your child. Once you have submitted the interest form, a member from the enrollment team will reach out with available open house dates and instructions to sign up to attend. 


Visit Our School

Attend an open house* or schedule a tour to discover what makes Rise shine! Please be sure to complete the interest form before attending an open house or taking a tour. 

*Our open houses will resume in September 2020. 


Playdate at Rise

Once you have completed the interest form and visited our school, we will schedule a playdate for your child in a prospective classroom.


Admissions Decision

 The enrollment committee will review your application and determine admission based on available space, classroom ratios (traditional learner vs child with developmental delays), and our ability to serve your child’s needs.

Our enrollment process aims to provide an equitable and individualized experience for all children and their families.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.



Upon acceptance, you will receive an offer letter and enrollment packet. To reserve your space, a registration fee and contract must be submitted. You will be given a deadline to submit your completed enrollment packet which will serve as your child’s individual file. The file will contain pertinent information required by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (licensing). 

Important Notice

WE DO NOT HAVE A WAITLIST. If the desired classroom is at capacity or the admissions committee has determined that Rise is unable to serve your child’s needs, families can reapply the following year for the upcoming school year.

Each year, enrollment for the upcoming school year starts fresh. If Rise is unable to accept a child for the 2020–2021 school year, families are welcome to reapply for the next school year. 

Admissions decisions are typically made in the spring after re-enrollment packets of current families have been submitted.
