Support Our School
As a charter school, Founders Classical Academy operates with a smaller budget and fewer resources than the other public schools in our neighborhood. We are proud to provide our students with an excellent education on a small budget, and we are grateful to the supporters who contribute their time and treasure to help us do so.
Make a Gift
As a public charter school, we do a lot with a little. The support of parents and generous members of the community is essential for our continued success. If you would like to donate educational materials for use in classes, please visit our Amazon wish list below.
Would you like to support a particular program at the school? Please contact our front office or use the form below to get in touch. Responsive Education Solutions, our parent organization, is a 501(3)c nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
Volunteer Your Time
Parent volunteers play an essential role at Founders Classical Academy. Whether you volunteer for just one hour or over a hundred hours, your help is essential in supporting the education of our students. Some volunteers may assist in the classroom with instructional or clerical tasks. Others may help shelve books in the library, assist during lunch, or work with the PTO on fundraisers. Your volunteer efforts teach our children the importance of spending time in the service of a worthy cause.
Beginning the 2017-2018 school year, we are implementing a new program called Archer Hours. Founders asks that each family commit to volunteer 20 hours per family over the course of the 2017-2018 school year. These hours can be served by parents, grandparents, extended family, and siblings who have graduated from high school. Archer Hours can be served at school or in some cases, from home or over the summer. A family who is unable to serve 20 hours over the course of the year may buy out hours for the year with a suggested donation of $250. This annual donation helps to support school programs and offset the costs of the literature and math textbooks that the school gives to students each year.
