Henderson Collegiate is a non-profit public charter school dedicated to transforming rural public education for low-income families in Vance County. We receive only 76% of per pupil funding compared to district public schools. Philanthropic support is a vital part of giving our students the resources needed to prepare them to attend and graduate from a college of their choice.
Of our student population, 86% qualify for free or reduced lunch, which means that our students and families are navigating a myriad of unique and incredibly challenging barriers in these unprecedented times. These barriers jeopardize both their families’ wellbeing and their students’ success.
This Spring, your gifts enabled us to build our PRIDE Online digital learning platform, purchase over 1,250 devices, and provide internet access. As we begin the 2020-2021 school year, we are committed to continuing to provide an excellent education for our students in these ever-changing circumstances. Even amidst the uncertainty of COVID-19, the Pride of 2020 followed in the footsteps of the Pride of 2019, and graduated with 100% acceptance to at least one four-year college or university. We are excited to continue this tradition of excellence, and we invite you to join us in our mission by giving today!
Thank you for supporting the Pride!
