2020-2021 Annual Campaign

Since the mid-1990’s, approximately 17,000 refugees have been resettled in Charlotte, North Carolina. Many refugees leave behind more than their home when conflict forces them to flee; they must also abandon their school. Becoming refugees at primary and secondary educations levels, these children face tremendous challenges in completing their education.  Refugees who flee while pursuing education often do not find opportunities in refugee camps to continue their studies.  Naturally, this sets back their learning and success. In the face of such difficulties, it is easy for once-ambitious kids to lose hope. At The Nest Academy, we are actively filling in the educational and emotional gaps. We need your help to make our efforts go even further!

Your support is crucial to our efforts to help our students become working and contributing adults in our community.  

 If you’re able, please make a donation to help us achieve our mission. Thank you in advance for your generosity. 

Here are the ways you can make a donation:

“It is desired that The Nest Academy be a place where God’s glory is promoted and genuine learning and growing takes place in the lives of students.” from The Nest Academy Honor Code.

The Academy was started by MC Hildreth in 2009 with 5-girls in a small donated space near uptown Charlotte. The Academy now has it’s own custom built school building and 24 students are enrolled in the school. Our students are from Vietnam, Thailand, The Congo, Ethiopia, Mexico, Iraq, Malaysia, Argentina, El Salvador and the United States. We currently have 5 – staff members and dozens of wonderful volunteers who are giving our students a great teacher/student ratio prompting accelerated learning. We are challenging our students to achieve the highest academic standards possible, so they can go on to be a positive influence in their communities.
