Open for new and continuing students!
Here is the form: https://forms.caltechy.org/rise/. Returning students only need to fill out the online application to enroll. This is so we have your current class and contact info. We will be starting on Monday, September 14th for returning students.
The Rise Program will continue to be remote for the fall term. During the winter break, we will be able to assess whether some form of in-person tutoring will be possible in January or later in the year. That decision will be largely based on Caltech’s guidelines. Other than being remote, the Rise Program will remain the same. Students will be matched with a regular tutor and expected to attend tutoring on their assigned day, or notify the Rise Program if an absence is necessary. We are training tutors to be prepared with more supplemental math and science materials in case students do not have homework for the day.
