St. Croix Christian Academy has been a staple in providing the youth of St. Croix a valuable education since 1982. Sadly, in 2017, two "Category 5" hurricanes struck the Virgin Islands, followed by Hurricane Maria that directly hit St. Croix. This natural disaster nearly demolished the entire school's infrastructure. There are multiple buildings that are in dire need of repairs, from gaping holes in the ceilings, fallen walls, broken plumbing, ruined electrical lines and damaged classrooms.

Hurricane Maria was regarded as the worst natural disaster in recorded history to affect St. Croix. The economy is poverty stricken and efforts to rebuild the school have been halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After years of trying to rebuild, the St. Croix Christian Academy has managed to get by with few resources and limited funds. This school year, the academy will finally be able to open up its doors to a small section of the school that still exists. However,  due to social distancing practices during the pandemic and lack of classroom space, they've had to turn away half of the students that inquire on enrolling; some of whom have limited choices on where they attend school.
 
Our goal is to raise $60,000 to go toward repairs on a smaller building outside of the main school campus. This will help to buy materials and cover labor costs for a building that will be able to hold additional classrooms of students and compensate teachers for their services. We'd like to  make sure that no student is turned away or deprived of an education school year. It is our hope that you can help by any amount of donation. Everything helps! We hope to have the school back to full functionality again by the 2021-2022 school year. Many thanks for your help!
