Global promise scholars

The Global Promise Scholars (GPS) initiative is hosted by Raise the Roof Academy as a supplemental scholarship for all our High School students. Now that they have completed Primary School, they will embark on their 6-year journey of Secondary School/High School.

Students in the GPS program attend external boarding schools. The RTRA Ugandan team has worked diligently to place each student in an academically competitive school that also reflects his or her individual needs. Each school has high expectations, requiring strong self-discipline in an academically rigorous environment.

We remain committed to supporting our students’ holistic development. This includes providing each student with their tuition, scholastic materials, dormitory supplies, and GPS development projects. We assist caregivers in providing mattresses, blankets, jerry cans, uniforms, shoes, and much more. It is important that each student is equipped with the necessary materials to successfully acclimate to their new environment.

We encourage students to stay engaged in the RTRA community during their breaks from school. Our GPS members are given the opportunity to develop their skills as growing leaders by participating in Service Projects, Leadership Training, Micro-Enterprise Projects, and an Annual Conference. We see our secondary students as important leaders in the community, and we challenge them to consider the different ways they can make their own contributions to their Ugandan neighbors.
