The cost to educate a Hales Franciscan student and to provide the other valuable services we offer to our surrounding community far exceed the tuition and fees we charge.  It is only through donations, grants, volunteer work and pro-bono services provided by generous individuals and corporations that we are able to cover this gap annually.  Here are a few creative ways you can support us today:

Sponsor A Scholarship:
The cost to attend Hales Franciscan is more than many deserving families can afford.  Your can fund a full or partial scholarship so such a family can give their child access to a high quality Hales Franciscan education.  

Provide General Operating Support:
Hales Franciscan’s transition to a service learning academy for young engineering entrepreneurs will attract and maintain enrollment at adequate levels, keep students meaningfully engaged in their learning, and prepare students for success in high school, college and professional life.

We also provide educational, recreational and social programs to the general public, and education consulting and management services to other organizations working to make a difference in the lives of children and adults in our community.

Your general operating support can help cover building staff, facility and administrative expenses for the year associated with providing these valuable services.

Fund A Suite of Student Experience Labs:
Given Hales Franciscan’s focus on engineering, entrepreneurship and digital technology, Hales Franciscan seeks funding for a state-of-the-art computer lab, maker space and indoor vertical hydroponic farm that complements our existing outdoor urban garden so our students can master core subject area content and skills in the rich, engaging, hands-on learning environment envisioned by the school.

Underwrite the Supplemental Support Service Team:
The low tuition charged by Hales Franciscan does not adequately supports our general operations, core instructional program and critical non-academic student support services.  Your gift in this area will help the school expand the size of its support service team so it can add more mentors, college and career prep coaches, and counselors.

Help Us Access Educational Consultants
Hales Franciscan seeks assistance in identifying and gaining access to funded and pro-bono consultants with secondary education expertise in order to obtain their insights regarding best practices in the field and feedback on concepts and practices being considered by the school. Your assistance in obtaining access to such consultants would be very impactful.
