Support Our School
Donate your time.
Hearthstone’s volunteers, whether parents of enrolled children or enthusiastic members of the larger community, are the backbone of the organization. Volunteers do construction, fundraising, cleaning and maintenance, teaching, administration and more at Hearthstone. Please contact the school office to become involved in current projects.
The Need for Alternative Education
Hearthstone serves families who prefer its individualized, interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to learning or whose children are not learning, not happy, under-served or under-challenged elsewhere. Some students attend Hearthstone from nursery school through graduation in 12th grade; others transfer from other schools at various ages. Hearthstone also supports the homeschooling community by offering part-time participation in classes and activities such as art, music, dance, language, and sports. Finally, Hearthstone is a resource for all area educators, developing and sharing innovative educational methods with other teachers and schools.
The Challenge: Developing Financial Stability
Hearthstone’s objective for financial stability is to meet increased enrollment and to achieve long-range fiscal stability. Hearthstone has undertaken a major renovation project in its new location on commercial land on Route 211 in Sperryville, Virginia, adjacent to Shenandoah National Park. The new school has the capacity to serve 80 students.. There is ample space to support all school activities as well as after-school, evening, weekend, and summer enrichment programs to benefit the whole community.
Tuition Support for Families in Need
Almost 50% of Hearthstone's families receive some form of financial aid. A monthly gift of $800 will sponsor a child who otherwise could not attend the school. We can match up several donors who wish to provide a partial scholarship. Please contact Jane Mullan at (540) 987-9212 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on sponsorship opportunities or to see a copy of the school’s Case Statement.
