We are the trailblazers. At Mountain Village Charter School, we are redefining the scope and potential for tuition-free public education in our community.

Mud-soaked socks; pockets full of rocks, acorns, and leaves; woodchips in lunch boxes; the incredible waterproof pants. Everyday the students at MVCS get to learn about the world in a way that most of their peers do not. Nature-based education at MVCS ignites curiosity, fosters team building and compassion, and develops a connection to the natural world that will ensure responsible stewardship.

This exceptional education, however, presents unique challenges. As a charter school, we must rely on fundraising to meet our financial needs. The MVCS board is dedicated to developing outside donors, writing grants, and applying for federal loans to ensure a successful future for our school.

This year, our annual fund goal is $65,000. Help us build our school:

  • Close the funding gap to cover operating expenses
  • Music, Art, and Foreign Language programs – bringing foreign languages into the classroom and developing an integrated nature-art curriculum
  • Bus and admission for field trips (e.g. Polar Caves, Quincy Bog, PSU Planetarium, PSU ropes course, Cardigan mountain all-school hike)
  • Extracurricular scholarships for families in need (After school, Nature Camp and Winter Program)
