Support Our Scholars

Generous supporters like you help our students receive not only an excellent education and foundation, but a promising future as well!
Our current success is due to every student receiving access to counseling and student health services, college and career readiness programs, athletics and comprehensive course offerings delivered by a committed and highly skilled team of educators. These services require resources beyond our established funding. The lack of an equitable school funding formula in PA has a significant effect on the acceleration of student success and access to opportunity – both huge pieces to the puzzle of a quality education for a child. As we enter into a new frontier in education, we are making every effort to deliver the highest quality education despite this unjust funding scenario.

By raising $1,250 per student, we are able to do the following:
  • Provide full-time counseling services to students
  • Employ a full-time nurse and on-site physician visits
  • Provide comprehensive course offerings, including more teachers and support staff
  • Expose students to a wide variety of meaningful career paths and hands-on experiences
Your gift directly influences our ability to inspire children to learn, achieve and lead and is critical to sustaining our program and maintaining strong reserves for the future. Read more about the impact you can make here.
