Rise Together Education (RTE Website, Handout)
We help low income Paly students get TO and THROUGH college!


In 2021, at least 10% of Paly students were considered low income (this translates to a family of 4 making less than $47,638/year) and thus qualified for the free or reduced lunch program. These are the classmates and friends of your children, and they are working hard every single day to try to get to college and break the cycle of poverty.

Launched in 2015, Paly’s Rise Together Education has awarded need-based scholarships to over 80 Paly graduates from the classes of 2015 through 2022. Our scholars have overcome significant financial and personal hardships to excel academically, and many have now graduated college within four years! They deeply appreciate your gifts. Learn more about their stories and see our new college grads at www.RiseTogetherEd.org.
