    AIU Special Education staff have been gearing up to be at their best game for the new academic year!

    A plethora of in-service programs were held at the AIU Central Office in Homestead this week for Vision and Hearing, Speech-Language and Occupational and Physical Therapy staff, as well as training for administrators and related staff at our AIU-operated Special Education Schools. These trainings ensure our professionals are up-to-date on the latest research-based approaches in their respective fields.

    Photo Gallery: PPG Paints Gives Sunrise a 'Colorful' New Finish!

    Over the summer, staff from PPG Paints came to Sunrise as part of PPG's "Colorful Communities" initiative to provide a fresh coat of paint in important spaces in the community!

    Check out the volunteers in action as they gave the walls of Sunrise a beautiful sky blue finish. We can't wait for our students and staff to see it in-person in just a few weeks!

    Classes begin Aug. 30!

    Photo Gallery: Sunrise Superhero 5K 2022!

    This weekend, the Sunrise community came together in a very special way for the Sunrise Superhero 5K! It was our first in-person 5K in two years and folks from across Allegheny County came to run in support of Sunrise School! Although rain was in the forecast, Sunday came and the clouds scattered and brought PERFECT conditions for our walkers and runners!

    Many students wore their best superhero costumes and many parents and community members wore snazzy commemorative t-shirts for this year's event. Thanks to everyone, including our generous sponsors, for participating and supporting Sunrise School! Take a look at all the fun in the corresponding photo gallery:
