Excellence Community Schools is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supporting a family of free, public charter schools. Your contributions support our robust programs that allow our scholars to interact with cutting edge technology, explore career opportunities, promote conscientious and sustainable living, and provide scholarships to attend competitive programs, high schools, and colleges.

We strive to provide our scholars and alumni with meaningful experiences that lead them on a pathway to excellence at little to no additional cost, particularly for our struggling families. Unrestricted donations are appreciated as they go to work directly in the areas where they are required most.
