Annual Give

 Students on monkey bars
 
Every year Annual Give provides Prospect Ridge Academy with the working capital to support the daily functions of the school. Everything from staff salaries to maintenance expenses are supported by the Annual Give program. 
 
New this year… choose the K8 playground, the PRA buses, or the PRA Excellence Fund to put your generous donation.
 
This fun challenge has a tremendous impact on the mission of our school and you can make a significant difference. 
 
Please consider making a contribution that is meaningful to you. This can be as simple as giving what you would have spent on a family dinner this week or a vacation that has been postponed until next year. 
 
No donation is too small and we are truly grateful for each and every gift.
 
Unlike traditional public schools, Prospect Ridge Academy operates with a funding gap of approximately $1,390 per student.While PRA receives the same per-pupil operating funds as other public schools, most traditional public schools have 100% of their building needs covered by bond dollars. PRA uses 15-20% of these per-pupil operating funds to pay debt services for our building.PRA incurs additional expenses to create our unique learning environment, including:
  • maintaining a low student to counselor ratio to promote our college-prep culture
  • providing an elementary science lab
  • supporting technology on an individual student basis to enhance instruction
  • offering competitive middle school sports
  • providing real-life service-learning opportunities for students
  • modern, well-equipped facilities that we own and operate
Gifts to the Annual Give campaign allow us to continue to offer exceptional educational experiences for every PRA student.
 
Donations are accepted year-round, and individuals can sign up for a monthly recurring deduction. Support comes from all constituencies at PRA - parents, staff, grandparents, and friends.
 
The Annual Give campaign touches every aspect of our school and helps maintain the academic excellence for which we are known.Contribute to the Annual Give Today!
