Aspire significanlty outperforms traditional schools -- despite operating on one third less public funding per student.
Since 2008, Aspire -- and all public charter schools -- have faced a 25% cut in per student funding. Even as we've faced those cuts, we've maintained excellent schools, with results climbing ever higher.
Due to those cuts, Aspire seeks private support to fill in the gap. With your help, we can continue to provide the high-quality College for Certain education our children deserve. Donate here.
Aspire's financial statements are audited annually by a Certified Public Accounting firm experienced with both public school and not-for-profit accounting.
