Adrian's gifted education fund

$930 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 42 months
Our family: My name is Evangelia and I am the mother of a wonderful, intelligent and caring child. As a single mother, I've had many hardships cross my path both financially emotionally. However difficult things became, Adrian was always given the best in life. Between taking night classes to become a secondary school teacher and working two jobs, Adrian has always came first.
Adrians story: even as an infant everyone, including myself, could see that this child was exceptional. At the young age of 1 year he could recite the alphabet in English, Greek and American Sign Language. He began identifying his sight words at the age of two and by three he could read kindergarten level books (and some even beyond that). 
Now at the age of 6, he is attending a public school in queens where he has been accepted into their gifted program. He is learning mandarin as another language and has science and robotics class. He loves his teacher and his classmates, but something is missing. There is no challenge. Now reading The third of the Harry Potter series and brushing up on his identification of the parts of the human heart, his education outside of school is where he focus's his attention. 
This should not be the case. The public school system should be able to provide what is needed for all students. Unfortunately that is not how things are done. He is getting bored, no longer wanting to go to school or even do his "babyish" homework, as he would put it. 
Watching my bright child lose his enthusiasm in education is difficult, but I have found the solution!
Adrian has been accepted into the Speyer Legacy School in NYC, a highly competitive and educationally rigorous gifted private school. I know this is where he belongs. They offer all the attention and opportunities to help Adrian become a successful person in society. He has the most potential to do great things.
the issue lies with the affordability. I have received enough to only pay for a potion of the tuition from financial aid, which leaves $20,000. Please help this child recieve the care he needs, it would truly be appreciated.

I'm beyond grateful for all the donations we've received. By working hard and not spending, I personally raised $9,000 for Adrian's tuition. It hasn't been easy but I've nearly paid off the entire year (with help from friends and family of course). Walking in to this accelerated learning school for Adrian's first day last week solidified my belief that this is where he belongs. I have three payments left (total of $5,000). If You could find a way to donate whatever you can I promise it will be well worth it! Thanks everyone!

Independently reading at home, Adrian spends countless hours pushing his limits as a reader. Adrian reads books that vary from 4th to 7th grade reading levels. No pictures. Just text. And yet the public school system has him reading first grade picture books. Help him get the extra bit of attention he needs!
Nose in book. As usual!
Reading Quantum League, great book!
