Support Our Educational Goals and Enrichment Programs!

Your 100% tax-deductible donation will help us provide greater educational and enrichment opportunities for our middle school students.  Under our charter from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Helen Y. Davis Leadership Academy receives a tuition reimbursement for each student. However, additional private funds are needed to support our curriculum, which provides strong academic supports and sense of culture. These programs promote growth and character development, increase parental involvement, help fill achievement gaps, and greatly contribute to our recognition as a Performance Level One School.
