RISEN is an inclusive educational ministry, focused on the
overall development of the child with special needs, thereby
maximizing their potential to the best of their ability. We believe that
it is through each child’s differences that we come to learn more about the purposes
and philosophical meanings of life.
RISEN is the only special educational program for children within
the Diocese of Norwich. For the past eight academic years, Sacred Heart
School in Groton has been the host to this initiative which provides an
inclusive special educational environment in a private school.
The RISEN LRC is available for any specialized learning and academic enhancement that may be essential to the growth of the child.
This includes both remedial support as well as an accelerated program for the exceptional child.
RISEN is an opportunity for value-centered, quality education rooted in the Catholic faith, which is accepting and embraces each child's differences. This experience incorporates academic excellence, faith formation, and enriches the communities we serve.
