Support SOCA

Thank you for your interest in supporting us!

Founding a new school will take the help of many families, friends, and partners in our community. Our 501(c)(3) application has been accepted by the IRS and is pending approval. The IRS has stated that any gifts to SOCA given between now and the official approval date should be considered tax-deductible once the approval is complete.

Why do we need your help?

Because Southeast Ohio Classical Academy will be a public school, funding for normal operations will be provided by the State of Ohio once the doors have opened. However, this funding does not begin until the Fall of 2024, months after the school opens.

The school startup costs are entirely up to the fundraising efforts of our founding board. Some examples of the startup costs required are: costs of legal, financial and charter application consulting fees; marketing; facility rental fees and/or improvements; and insurance and staff salaries. In our start-up plan, the principal of our school will come on staff one year prior to opening and will be key to staff development, marketing, and many other important school planning tasks.

Southeast Ohio Classical Academy is incorporated as a non-profit entity in the state of Ohio (EIN: 87-3013431). Therefore, all donations to Southeast Ohio Classical Academy are tax-deductible and after a donation, donors will receive a gift receipt.
