Giving


Life is full of challenges. At Compass and our two public charter schools, we are asked to rise to them everyday. We — students and adults alike — are encouraged to try things we may have never done before, whether it’s climbing a peak, singing on the Wheeler stage, writing an essay for math class, or raising hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to maintain our high-quality programming and low student-teacher ratios.

And in the safety and support of this community, we do. We say yes first, and then we figure out a plan and make it happen. This kind of nimble, solutions-oriented mindset — so vital to succeeding in the 21st century — requires a lot of effort. It takes no shortage of gumption. And it brings great rewards, not the least of which is proving that with hard work, curiosity and a positive attitude we can accomplish anything.

Which is exactly what we’re achieving, but we can’t do it without you! Our students and teachers are excelling across the board — despite drastic annual cuts in school funding — and we need to stand up and throw our support behind them. We invite you to rise to this challenge with us. Say yes and together we will make it happen.

Please support our schools with a secure online donation today.
