Rising Academies


Freetown, Sierra Leone


Our mission is to create the best schools and the most powerful teaching and learning tools for the people that need them most. We’re one of the fastest-growing quality-focused education companies in Africa, and a Certified B Corp®. And we get results: independent studies show Rising students make more than twice the progress of their peers in comparable schools. ​Founded in Sierra Leone in 2014, we provided emergency education to children kept out of school by the Ebola Epidemic before opening our first school in April 2015. Today, we serve 300,000 students across more than 700 schools in Sierra Leone, Liberia Ghana and Rwanda.
