Who Are We / Our Story / Leadership
Rise was founded on the strong beliefs of our Chairman, Barry O’Callaghan for the need to change the way we teach young learners and prepare them for a new global future.
We understand that the core attributes of today’s leaders cannot be taught using traditional teaching methods alone. We also recognize the importance of English in our current environment.
English is now the dominant international language of the 21st century and is spoken by a quarter of the world’s population. It is also increasingly becoming the language of business, communications, science, information technology, entertainment and diplomacy.
However, the way English is taught has not fundamentally changed. The Rise Program, through the Rise Educational Centers, addresses this need for change and has delivered tremendous outcomes in both English fluency and improved social and leadership skills. The brand is now a global leader in innovative education with an international presence in the following countries; China, South Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Indonesia and The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
We believe passionately in creating dynamic education experiences using all technology, innovation and data available to engage the mind and imagination of the 21st Century child.
