The Academy Angel Tree is one of our favorite holiday traditions

AND

 so many of our new students are

experiencing the holidays

for the very first time

We would love your support in making this year very special

with gifts that keep giving ALL YEAR LONG.

We want them to be reading, learning, and engaged!

Our WISHLIST for each student includes:

1) Something to READ

2) Something they NEED

3) Something to EXPERIENCE (all year long)

Your gift of an experience will ‘gift’ a membership

to Charlotte’s Discovery Place

and allow us to take students on experiential learning field trips 

ALL YEAR 

(Donate $95)

If you are interested in becoming an angel by adopting a child, choose from our student list below.
