  • Rise Preparatory Academy was instrumental in assisting my son with correcting the mistakes created by his public school registrar. My son's situation was not unique however he was an unintentional victim of what is wrong with how the school system changes can affect the very students its supposed to help...Jerry explained to my wife and I how his school worked and that Jaleen would be an ideal student and was exactly what motivated him to create Rise Academy...Jaleen not only committed he was able to accomplish all his requirements and graduated six months early. Jaleen was offered a scholarship to Quincy University  in Quincy Illinois. While his friends where preparing for thier Senior year and prom Jaleen was entering and beginning his College debut as a early enrollee at Qunicy University.

  • I am single parent of 2 kids (girl) (boy), my son was having a really difficult time in High School that affected him in sports & classroom...his father died at a young age so for him Football was his outlet. I reached out to Jerry via Facebook because I noticed he was active with kids on and off the field. And to my surprise he had a program to help kids that are not doing well potentially failing in High school. I started telling Jerry who also followed my son during his Optimist years my situation and that I needed help without hesitation Jerry request his records and call me and said the magic words "I can save your son and help him graduate" 2 years later my son had shown so much progress in his education he is now has a job and maintaining his grades with Rise Preparatory and I owe it all to Jerry Williamson.
  • My son has been through both the worse & tough times in his life when it comes to academics. He began struggling around 3rd grade. He quickly started falling behind. To the point he failed the 3rd grade. I felt like a bad parent & felt like I had a non-teachable child. I took all the necessary steps from teacher conferences and also going the length to reach out to the School Board. Long story short we tried different schools, different teachers and even classes. Then 1 day Calvin came and had a talk with me. He ensured that he’s ready to get in his right grade and ready for all the obstacles ahead. Fast forward ⏩ Got in contact with Jerry and he explained about his new school that he was starting. Very small but hands on, exactly what my son needed. Calvin started school and even started extra credit courses. I started to see all the potential the teachers never noticed before. The grades were always good from start to finish. I don’t believe he received anything less than a B. Unfortunately with life circumstances we did have to part ways but I’ve always recommended Jerry to anyone that has kids struggling in school. He drastically changed my son’s life within a few months of being a Rise Prep Academy student.
