Together we can make it happen.
WHY HELP LAKE COUNTRY CLASSICAL ACADEMY?
Lake Country Classical Academy is the first public/tuition-free, K-12 classical charter school, and the first Hillsdale College Member School in Wisconsin. We successfully opened our doors to more than 400 students (grades K-9) this past September. Parents and students are extremely grateful for this unique classical option; however, part of the reality as a start-up school is that we will incur a first-year operating deficit of approximately $400,000. Although LCCA receives state aid as a public charter school, this operating deficit is a result of one-time startup expenses (renovation of our East campus, curriculum materials, desks, computers, etc.) and the additional costs associated with operating two facilities/campuses. In time, as LCCA continues to grow enrollment and consolidates to operating a single K-12 campus, this annual operational deficit will be substantially reduced, despite being funded approximately 20% less than our surrounding public school districts.
THE WILLIAM S. KNIGHT FOUNDATION MATCHING GRANT
We're pleased to announce that the William S. Knight Foundation has graciously offered a $250,000 matching grant to help us raise the additional operational funding that we need. Every dollar you give to LCCA between now and August 2022 will be matched, dollar for dollar, by the William S. Knight Foundation up to $250,000!
