Colorado Gives Day

Thank you to everyone who supported us in December! We raised over $4,000!
You can donate any time here.


Why should I support Jefferson Academy?

Excellence: JA’s commitment to academic excellence is clear. Each year, many graduating seniors are awarded approximately $1,000,000 in scholarships and financial support. Both of our campuses have received the John Irwin School of Excellence Award many times, an honor given to schools who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time. Read more

Commitment to Mission & Vision: Originally formed in 1994 by a group of parents, JA remains committed to creating a learning environment that results in productive citizens. This commitment was clear during COVID-19, as teachers, parents, and students worked together to learn, no matter where that learning took place. 

How does my donation help Jefferson Academy?

Whatever the amount, your donation helps to fund all areas of Jefferson Academy and its mission and vision. This year, the effects of a pandemic on our operations and budget have been far-reaching. From helping to fund more staff for remote students to purchasing new camera equipment, your donation this year will mean a better experience for our students and staff.

In 2023, your donation during CO Gives Day will support innovation in the classroom, school safety, facilities improvements, and provide help to JA and Summit families in need.

Fundraising in previous years supported these projects and programs:

  • The installation of keyless, fob entries on all exterior doors at both the elementary and secondary campuses, an incredible upgrade in technology, communications, and safety.
  • Mini grants available to all teachers/staff at JA and Summit, to support their ideas and encourage innovation in the classroom & schools.
  • The Community Cares program, providing Holiday Care Packages and grocery cards for JA and Summit families experiencing food insecurity and other immediate needs.
