Support Nova’s mission today. Give Now. 

Unlike traditional public schools, charter schools like Nova are at a financial disadvantage. We cannot raise needed funds through local tax levies the way traditional public school districts do. This means Nova receives approximately $3,500* less per student each school year than local public schools. (*See April 2015 article and March 2015 analysis on St. Paul public v. charter funding.)

When you give to Nova, your dollars go where the need is greatest, and help fund the nuts and bolts of classical education. You may help purchase classroom, lab, extracurricular or athletic supplies and equipment. Past funds have even been used to develop the grounds at Nova, including the athletic field and rain garden. Nova’s board of directors carefully determines the school’s most urgent fundraising priorities, and Nova goes to great lengths to ensure that each dollar you donate is stretched to achieve the most possible.

“When I found out that my daughter and her husband were so pleased with what Nova was doing for one of their children that they decided to enroll the other two, I was confident that those children were getting a good, solid education. As a grandfather, that’s important to me.” Bill Kansas, Grandparent
