Rise Up is West Virginia's Dropout Prevention Initiative. We all know the value of an education, but sometimes obstacles make it difficult to stay the course. The website provides alternatives, suggestions, resources and guidance to overcome these obstacles and stay on the road to successful completion of high school.

More than half the students who drop out leave by the tenth grade, 20% quit by the eighth grade, and 3% drop out by the fourth grade.
