Our mission is to cultivate within each member of a diverse student body, through the Expeditionary Learning design, an intense commitment to self and community, the courage and insight to set high standards for academic and personal success, and the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to achieve those standards.

Fulfilling this mission is no easy task. It requires an extensive commitment of time, energy and financial resources that far surpasses the funding we receive from the state. We depend on a mix of fundraising activities including our annual 5K Fun Run for Fieldwork, 100% participation annual appeal, and partnerships with individuals and local businesses, to support our program and the future success of our scholars.

Please join us in securing the future of Christa McAuliffe Charter School for years to come. If you have questions or would like to learn more, please email Mara Gorden, mgorden@mcauliffecharter.org.
