This is a crucial time for education in the U.S. Because of recent budget cuts and other restrictions, Missouri public schools, in general, are underfunded. Charter schools have been hit even harder, as funding options for charters are more limited. Charters must rely on fundraising and financing for all major renovations and expansions. Over the past 10 years, Académie Lafayette has worked diligently to raise funds to purchase and expand a second campus because of its growing student population, but the needs continue. There are many ways to support our mission; learn more and/or donate below.
The Annual Fund is held every year typically beginning in November. Its purpose is to raise unrestricted funds for the school through voluntary donations.
Musketeer March, the school jog-a-thon, is held the second Friday in May. Students secure donations by asking friends and family to support them as they run/walk/jog/skip around a pre‑set course.
Our science teachers are ready for new Missouri Science Standards — but our classrooms are not. We need new test tubes, beakers, and scales, challenging field trips, and new textbooks. Your gifts will give students the hands on experiences and vision to embrace the science and engineering skills of the 21st Century.
The raffle is held in the fall at the beginning of the school year.
