"At the bottom of education, at the bottom of politics, even at the bottom of religion, there must be... economic independence." Booker T. Washington
Support Our School
Your support is critical to Booker T. Washington Academy’s success. Though we receive state charter school funding, we depend on our community to contribute additional, much needed funds to give our students the enrichment they need to become lifelong learners and active community members. There are many ways that you can be of support to us:
Become a “Friend of BTWA”
Join a network of individuals and organizations whose generous yearly gifts aid many aspects of our work. It supports our scholars access to digital libraries, enables our teachers to take class trips, and supports expenses associated with our extended day activities- the before and after-school tutoring programs, and summer programming. It helps us further our mission to provide an education as diverse as our students. It helps us develop scholars who “work hard, get smart”. Scholars who are thinkers, problem-solvers, and prepared to successfully compete in the global marketplace.
