Serving the DFW Metroplex

At Rising Aviation High School, we know how important it is to choose the right school for your teen.

That’s why we offer a one-of-a-kind educational experience that combines a challenging STEM curriculum with career-focused training in the aviation and aerospace technologies. 

Our safe and secure private school setting provides a solid foundation for your teen’s academic and vocational future. Whether they aspire to work in aviation or pursue other industries, this educational experience will set them up for long term success. 

Unlike traditional schools, we take a far more personalized approach to education.

Our classes are self-paced and success is based on content mastery, not seat time. In fact, our students typically find they are able to accelerate their studies and apply more time to their aviation pursuits.

Rising Aviation (RAHS) has been such a blessing for our student as he has found his community of like-minded peers and educators. Our son has been able to gain firsthand practical knowledge and experiences that have brought his dream of being a pilot to fruition.

RAHS has fostered industry relationships as well as leadership opportunities at school and in the community. All of this has afforded the opportunity to develop as a leader in the community and within the school. In addition, he has excelled academically with the support of administration and staff at RAHS. Lifetime friendships have been made here!

The Dallas STEM School with a Focus on Aviation Excellence

Dallas’s Best High School for Future Aviators

At Rising Aviation High School, a Dallas STEM school, we provide an affordable, safe, and secure learning environment for families in the DFW Metroplex. Our innovative educational program builds on the foundations of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), which are emphasized in many modern academic institutions. 

However, we take STEM education to the next level by coupling it with aviation and aerospace technology studies, practical aviation applications, and a focus on content mastery rather than just seat time. 

With over 20 years of alternative educational expertise, we’ve developed a unique blended learning model we call STEAM — Science, Technology, Engineering, Aviation, and Math.

Our approach actively prepares students for success in aviation and beyond.

 Our STEM and Aviation Program for High School Students

Rising Aviation Museum Trip

At Rising Aviation High School, we have a new way of learning that replaces old and outdated ways of teaching. As a leading private STEM high school, we don’t just move on to new topics because of time, we make sure that students really understand each subject before moving forward.

Our students love coming to school because they get to learn at their own pace and get help from teachers in small groups or one-on-one.

This helps our teachers focus on each student’s needs and plan lessons that are just right for them.

Who Should Attend: High School students interested in a flexible learning environment with a focus on technical education and special emphasis on aviation and aerospace.

Eligibility: Any student in grade 9 through grade 12.

What They Can Earn Upon Graduation: Students will graduate with an accredited high school diploma with a STEM Endorsement and will be highly trained, ready for many career paths including the thousands of opportunities in aviation and aerospace.

 Ready to become part of the leading STEM school of Dallas? Contact us today to learn more about our unique programs. 

From the first day a student walks through our doors, we strive to cultivate their curiosity about aviation and provide hands-on learning in a supportive environment. As principal, the most fulfilling part of my job is seeing our students earn their licenses and pursue their aviation dreams.

Discover a Unique Learning Environment

Blended Learning

Replacing outmoded and obsolete educational models, students can work virtually but as a matter of practice will attend school at our Flight Center.

Schedule Flexibility

Our hybrid educational model and the fact that the high school operates 11 months out of the year (closing only in July) allows for tremendous schedule flexibility and opportunity for students. 

Individual & Small Group Instruction

Given the small class sizes of our private school, our teachers focus on each individual student’s needs and tailor lesson plans to each student.


The Rising Aviation education program encourages students to advance based on subject mastery rather than standard time-oriented assessments. Students move ahead at their own pace according to prescribed criteria.
