NSA Foundation Overview

 
At NSA we typically reserve 17% of our PPR to pay for our beautiful building and the 4.8 acres in which it sits. As a result, we run a lean, tight ship when it comes to the remaining funds which are used for curriculum, programs, staff salaries, supplies and other things related to the day-to-day management of our school. Each year we run an active fundraising campaign to cover the cost of necessary items like continually enhancing technology, improving our safety and security and showing our appreciation to our amazing teachers and staff in the form of bonuses and additional compensation.
 
We have created the NSA Foundation as a supporting entity of our school to directly manage the outreach efforts and funds raised to support new programs and initiatives at NSA. Over the next three years, our school has a goal to raise $150,000 annually through sponsorships and donations. These funds will be used to cover expenses associated with technology, school safety, and staff appreciation/retention.
 
There are a variety of ways individuals and those in our community can support NSA and our mission to be known as a school of character and service. From making a one-time or annual monetary donation through our website to supporting individual events to committing to an annual sponsorship, opportunities abound to show your support of NSA, our program, students and staff.
