Join our Circle! Become a Friend of One Spark.

img_7146It’s almost cliché to say “It takes a village” nowadays, but our decades of searching for what really makes a difference in education has lead us over and over again to one simple truth: Like-minded people who are dedicated to nurturing the uniqueness of every student can change lives. We get the privilege of seeing this transformation daily at One Spark Academy and want it to be available to as many students as possible. YOU can help.

We don’t actually charge what it costs to run OSA. We never have.
We know how much some private programs cost, and we don’t charge that. It’s our dream to make a place like OSA accessible to all kinds of families, including who can’t otherwise afford a small learning environment for their kids when they need it. But that means that we rely on those who have the means to help more by donating. Our “full time” registration fees amount to far less than what it actually costs to provide such small classes, personalized attention, a safe space (the Teen Center!), and healthy lunches, which is why we have annual fundraising goals outside of registration costs, to help make up the difference. These giving opportunities provide our One Spark Family with the opportunity to stay connected to a community of educators and staff that believes in every child, whether they “fit the mold” or not.

Your tax-deductible monthly gift, whether large or small, will help ensure that another generation of kids has a safe place to land.

Our 2021-2022 Annual Giving Campaign kicks off in November, and we hope all families will add a little extra (or a lot), as well as tell friends and families about the importance of supporting small learning programs like One Spark Academy. However, the start of the school year always creates the largest flow of expenses, and never more than this year (pivoting back to in-person learning, increased rent, repurchasing materials, and more). You can support One Spark Academy in advance of the campaign by joining our Circle of Friends now. Every little bit helps. ❤️
