JUSTICE

The quality of being just; conformity to the principles of righteousness and rectitude in all things.

BROTHERHOOD

Brotherhood means perfect friendship. Do not consider me superior to you, I am one of you.

COMPASSION

To be compassionate you need to be genuinely concerned about the other person or people’s needs.

TOLERANCE

you should respect any person who is different from you, no matter what they believe in or what race they are.

Friendship is impossible to keep within yourself, it will always extend as far as it can reach to touch your hearts.

MIND

Academic tutoring encourages students to think critically and motivates them to excel in their education. It boosts self-confidence and fosters the development of lifetime skills and habits that are conductive towards excellence.

The RISE Up Program encourages the growth of the mind using multiple faucets of academic inquiry and innovation that are developed to cater to the needs of the student. Tutors work with students to complete assignments for school and, in some cases, provide enrichment classes to further develop the student. With contemporary tutoring room and creative methods, RISE Up tutoring ensures that students are provided with the resources they need to become strong leaders of tomorrow.

Academic tutoring subjects include: Mathematic Tutoring, Science Tutoring, English Literature / Reading Tutoring, Writing Tutoring, Social Sciences / Studies Tutoring, Quranic Teachings.

BODY

Studies indicate that students who actively exercise or are engaged in physical activities during the week, have stronger mental and emotional health, and are more productive and positive than those who don’t. Furthermore, maintaining a healthy body contributes to the well-being and appropriate growth of the human person.

The RISE Up Program is designed to incorporate daily physical health and fitness sessions where students will have the opportunity to play multiple sports with fellow students, including basketball, volleyball, and more! Students will engage in team-building activities and have the opportunity to undergo a health and physical fitness evaluation, hosted by the fitness coaches and specialists.

As the program grows, the RISE Up Program will feature sports teams who will participate in local leagues in Houston.

SPIRIT

While students strive to achieve academic and physical excellence, the spirit also requires development and active attention to become stronger moral and faithful human beings. As Muslims, maintaining the good and forbidding the evil, is among the core principles of the human dynamism.

The RISE Up Program encourages students to actively pursue their faith through Assembly and Character Building sessions. During Assembly, students are encouraged to participate in congregational prayer of the evening (Maghrib) and are involved in the WISE Thoughts experience, where students and staff share “food for thought” regarding contemporary moral and religious ideas. In addition, students will have the opportunity to partake in Character Building sessions where they work to develop moral fiber and become role models for those around them.

This further allows students a forum to introduce and discuss questions and address issues concerning society and education today.
