RISE Advisory and Leadership Program
At Salt Lake Arts Academy our students learn the values of RISE -- Respect, Integrity and Inclusion, Safety and Empathy. Through a weekly meeting with their Advisors in a small, grade-specific group, students are led through developmentally appropriate excercises and lessons that teach them how we live these values at school, at home and in our larger community.
Students also travel through our city with their Advisory Group, learning to use public transportation on field trips, doing service projects and exploring the rich resources of downtown Salt Lake City.
A student's Advisor is another adult at school who is watching over a student, checking in regularly on each student's overall academic and and social well-being, and collaborating with other teachers to make certain each student is well-known, well-supported and well-challenged.
