As the Academy grows, the need for scholarships also increases as many local children cannot afford the modest tuition. To date, the program has found donors to sponsor 3 students each semester. Just 10 additional scholarships per semester would allow us to move everyone off the waiting list.  If you are interested in more information about scholarships, please email

We hope you’ll consider supporting the Academy by making a tax-deductible contribution today.
