The Hershey Campus is raising money for the learning support classroom to give scholarships to students so that they are able to be a part of the program to better meet their needs. All proceeds from the entire event go directly to student scholarships. The goal is to raise enough funds to significantly reduce the additional fees of learning support tuition. The generosity of the surrounding community is what allows the school to reach all students to provide a Christian education that transforms lives to change our world.

“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will NEVER give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” – Rita Pierson
