The Back-to-School/Stay-in-School Academy has been serving the Springfield community for over 25 years.  The Academy was created in response to alarming high school dropout rates, the need to understand the correlation between education and life-long earnings, and a commitment to maximizing student potential.  The mission of the Academy is to increase the number of skilled students graduating from high school by providing them with mentorship, tutoring services, remedial assistance, and incentives for maintaining regular attendance

The Academy saves lives and it needs your help to further continue to educate and graduate the students in the Springfield community. The goal is to raise $15,000 to provide resources and opportunities for the students such as uniforms, professional counseling, and access to technology.  This is just a fraction of what the Academy needs but will help in a big way. 

Your donation will help secure a permanent building that will advance the experience of the students.  Please consider making a monetary donation to help continue the mission of the students and the Academy.  Thank you in advance for your contribution.
