Without your monetary support to close the gap between HCA’s public funding and the cost of educating our students, much of what we do would be impossible.

Maine’s public charter schools’ operating revenue comes from the application of the Essential Programs and Services formula that passes through some, but not all of the per-student public funding. While complicated, the bottom line is that HCA operates at a per-student cost roughly 75 to 85% of that of our nearest public school colleagues. For the first trimester, HCA’s actual per student revenue independent of fundraising was @$9,830 per student compared to @$12,847 for the district in which HCA is located, SAD #75.

While HCA’s 4th year budget is forecast to sustain the staffing, equipment, and facilities necessary to achieve educational outcomes, years 1-3 require the raising of additional revenue from foundations, individual and corporate donors.
