Arise Academy A Prom Success Story

Posted by

Arise Academy Charter High School is a public-charter high school in Philadelphia, specifically created to support youth who are in foster care placements. The Arise program features a rigorous student-centered, technology based curriculum as well as extensive career development and internship experiences in safe, supportive, and nurturing school environment.

Until recently, Arise Academy was unable to have a prom, with limited resources and the curriculum taking priority, prom was always something that was out of reach.

Last spring Anderson’s together with David’s Bridal® and other corporate sponsors joined forces to give these students a night they will always remember.

Anderson’s received this heartfelt thank you note from the school:

“The Board of Directors, staff and students of Arise Academy Charter High School thanks Anderson’s from the bottom of our hearts for making our first-ever Prom the great success that is was – we could not have done it without you!”

Thank you Arise Academy for letting Anderson’s be part of your special event!
