happy Middle schooler

For Hiawatha Academies, philanthropy is the driver of excellence. Most of the public funding received by schools goes into the operational cost of keeping our schools free and open to all. Your gift in turn is valuable in bolstering the high-quality education we believe every child deserves regardless of socio-economic status.

Your contribution is vital to provide more than just the bare minimum. It helps us provide strong systems and practices that best meet the needs of every unique scholar.
