“Above all things I hope the education of the common people will be attended to; convinced that on their good sense we may rely with the most security for the preservation of a due degree of liberty.

Why Public Education?
Public schools educate 90% of our children.
Strong public schools secure our community’s future.
Schools across the Commonwealth and the nation have been challenged to maintain the status quo with little hope of raising the bar to compete globally.
Board members, donors, parents, and teachers have answered the call to action: to create, enhance, and support our community by underwriting opportunities that add value to public education.
Charlottesville and Albemarle County schools are ready to jump start innovation and invent the future of public education!
