Why Give?

How does funding work?

SCPA is a public charter school and therefore receives state funding. Funding is received via “per pupil funding” which is determined by the state legislature.

Per pupil funding’ follows every MN student (pupil) to the public school he/she attends. Both traditional public school districts and public charter schools receive the same per pupil funding’ rate.

School Levies?

Unlike traditional public schools,  charter schools do not receive any funds from local voter approved levies, which, for St. Croix Prep, equates to approximately 20% (or $1.5 million) less funding per year than the neighboring traditional district. Therefore; in order to enhance our programming, our facility, and to offer a competitive compensation plan to our outstanding teachers, we must raise funds (fundraisers, capital campaigns, grants) to close this funding gap.

Closing the Gap

Building a Culture of Giving.

Since 2008, through our three annual events and three capital campaigns, the St. Croix Prep community has raised $1.6 million dollars.
