Student & Family Resources
SOAR is NCLA's primary capital fundraiser. As a charter school, we heavily rely on philanthropic support to help bridge the gap that the state does not cover. NCLA partners with parents, grandparents, staff, businesses and others to continually advance our goal of becoming better each and every day. Every gift makes a difference in the lives of our students and has a direct impact on NCLA's students, faculty and families.
Charter schools do not receive local bond funds, no State funds for buildings and no funds from the NC Education Lottery. This results in NCLA only receiving approximately 73% of the funding a neighboring school in our county is allocated.
SOAR eliminates various direct sale campaigns, allowing our PTO to focus on other parts of their vision like celebrating versus primarily fundraising. And, the majority of your tax deductible contributions go directly to the school versus only 10% - 30%.
NCLA has achieved amazing milestones since the school opening in 2013. Only by working together will we be able to address the funding gaps each year. We are asking 100% of our families to give what you can to make a difference. No donation is too small, or too large!
