Donate This Holiday Season


Donate Today — Support Our Students’ Work

Your donation supports Polaris’ mission and enables us to provide our nationally recognized hands-on learning expeditions and fieldwork opportunities to our K-8th grade students. Generous friends like you provide the financial resources that enable Polaris students to achieve more than they think possible, to excel academically in the classroom and beyond, and to explore how they can contribute to a better world.
We are grateful for your gift of any size. Thank you for supporting Polaris Charter Academy.
