College and Career Prep
College prep can begin as soon as you do. Your mentor will help you choose the right courses based on your goals and interests. They'll even be there when it's time to apply for college. Together you can create a college wish list, target specific schools, review their admissions policies and even look into options for financial aid.
Our online program is widely respected, and the School District of Janesville has been nationally recognized. That means a transcript from the ARISE Virtual Academy is as transferable—and as widely accepted—as a transcript from any traditional high school in Wisconsin. With your diploma will come required records for the college application process, including valid transcripts, SAT/ACT scores and instructor recommendations.
We are among Wisconsin's best schools. So you'll graduate with a diploma that can take you anywhere: Wisconsin state universities, private institutions, leading technical and vocational programs, and Ivy League colleges throughout the nation.
