Donating to SCS

Charter schools offer students, families, and teachers a fresh alternative to traditional public or private schools. In New Hampshire, charter schools are public and funded by the state, but at a rate significantly lower on a per student basis than traditional public schools. In exchange for limited funding, charter schools are given the freedom to create unique missions or “charters” that embody the values of the school.

New Hampshire funds its charter schools at one of the lowest rates in the US. New Hampshire’s traditional public school students receive an average of $14,900 in federal, state, and local funding per year. NH charter schools receive only $6,600 per pupil, per year. We do a lot with our limited budget, but must still depend on family contributions, community fundraising, and volunteer support!
