Why We Need Funds

Charter Schools receive state and federal funding, but not nearly the same as other public schools. The per-pupil allotment for an LABCS student is about $5,000 less per student than in Pickens County, and half as much as in Greenville County. 

While the public funds help us hire great teachers, secure innovative furniture and supplies, and provide special services to our students with IEPs, state funds will not pay for a library full of books, a playground, a lunch program, or our building renovations. 

This means the school relies on private donations to ensure we meet all the needs of our students. 

Please consider attending one of our fundraising events, recruiting local businesses to help, or make a donation now.
