The Children’s Project Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of foster teens. When completed, The Children’s Project Academy will enable 120 7th-12th grade foster youth to live with passionate, dedicated foster parents and alongside teachers, foster grandparents and staff, creating permanent relationships with caring adults. The residential and educational programs will provide a challenging academic curriculum within a campus community of stability and a sense of place for foster youth who, through no fault of their own, are often without both.
Once built, the Academy will:
- Provide a year-round, academically rigorous program within a residential community of support, stability, and continuity;
- Ensure that every student will graduate with a high school diploma; and
- Empower every student to set and achieve the highest educational goals, as well as gain those vocational, social, and life-skills indispensable to a successful future.
We have the opportunity to be a leader, as communities across the state and nation recognize that this charter boarding school model is an ideal way to solve the problems of multiple moves and poor educational outcomes for our foster teens. This academy will leave a lasting legacy as it enables our children to create and sustain happy and productive lives, which will benefit them, and all of us for years to come.
