/ OUR ROOTS
Rising High Homeschool Academy is a homeschool program started by Sondra Anderson, a recent retired school teacher of 30 years. With the constant changes in school programs and uncertainty, Ms. Anderson decided that there was a need for an education program that focused strictly on academics void of distractions and activities that take students away from academics.
/ THE FOUNDER/DIRECTOR
Many of you know that my name is Miss Sondra Anderson. I taught in the public school system for over thirty years and taught grades Kindergarten through fifth. When I first moved to the Atlanta metro area, I taught at Esther Jackson Elementary School in Roswell for eight years. Then I transferred to Findley Oaks Elementary in Johns Creek the year it opened in 1994 and worked there for twenty years ago until I retired. During my tenure at Findley Oaks, I tutored students on various subjects on different levels.
I am a native of Savannah, Georgia. I was educated by the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System during my formative years and received my bachelor’s degree from Savannah State and Armstrong Atlantic (formally Armstrong State College) Universities. Because of my love for learning, I continued my education by receiving a master’s degree from Oglethorpe University here in Atlanta. To this day, I still have hope of returning to school to fulfill my dream of becoming a school psychologist, and opening a center for at risk youth. My philosophy of education purports the idea that learning is a continuous process, never ending. My gpal is to instil in students a love for learning.
/ THE FUTURE: Virtual Tutoring
Students will use technology to view assignments, practice skills and track home school minutes. If students need extra help understanding a skill, the teachers will use technology to communicate and supply help.
Websites, such as, IXL Math, Brainpop, Math Playground will be used by students for home assignments.
Rising High offers virtual tutoring for students needing extra help or enrichment in an area of study. If your child needs an extra boost in an area of study to improve his/her grades, please give us a call to set up a tutoring schedule to get your child started.
