We are grateful to those individuals, foundations, organizations and corporations who have partnered with us to sustain NECCS during its first three academic years. This generous support has been essential for renovating the facility, establishing the classroom spaces, developing the curriculum, and strengthening our learning community.

Like other charter schools, NECCS looks to close the gap between monies received by the state and the cost to run the school. That gap is approximately $2,500 per student. In addition to this, money for special programs must be raised. These special programs enhance the curriculum, the effects of which you see as you browse our website. Take a look around and see how engaged our students are in their learning. Then we hope that you will join us with your support.
