Every gift to Lake Lure Classical Academy plays a vital part in continually building an institution that makes our present and past families and alumni proud of the greatest investment they could possibly make - that of trusting us with their child's education.

Whether you are considering a gift for the first time or you are a current supporter, we are grateful for your consideration and your loyalty. We look forward to serving you as a supporter and member of the Lake Lure Classical Academy Family.


Our Commitment to Changing the World Happens One Student at a Time

Since our founding in 2010, Lake Lure Classical Academy has empowered thousands of children to do big things through academic excellence, character development, kindness, and community betterment. As a tuition-free public charter school, government funding per student is significantly less than traditional public schools and we receive zero funding for capital improvements.

The Raptor Fund bridges the funding gap. It takes an outdoor learning center from planning to implementation. It creates places on our campus where children and teachers can foster experiential learning. It pays for unexpected roof repairs and helps feed students facing hunger.

It ensures we can provide counseling services. It staffs our classrooms with associate teachers. It funds educational programming that not only teaches students about chemistry and algebra but also how to be good citizens.

The need for The Raptor Fund is real, perhaps now more than ever. Whether your financial contribution comes in the way of monetary support, donations to our student lunch pantry, or as presents for families in need over the holidays, all gifts of all sizes are meaningful and they do make a difference.
