Academy: We are a college preparatory elementary charter school that strives to holistically prepare students for college entry and completion, so this grant would enable us to fund additional Character Development programs where students will receive instruction that focuses on developing determination, perseverance, respect for self & others, compassion, and accountability. We desire to develop character traits in students that will help them with college acceptance and to persevere through college graduation. We would also have an opportunity to increase the "Service Learning" efforts of the school so the students can complete service projects with non-profits throughout the Memphis community and the world. Not only do many colleges require service learning hours for admittance, service learning creates a feeling of self-worth and empowerment that is valuable to humanity. Finally, this grant would allow us to obtain cutting-edge technology to enhance students' learning.
