Please Support Our Annual Fund
The Annual Fund Campaign is our primary opportunity for school families to participate in the continued success of our school by helping to bridge the gap left by state and local funding. This fund supports existing educational programs, new curriculum development, improves facilities, and supports essential needs of Socrates Academy.
An online form must be filled out for each scholar at Socrates Academy.


This year we will not be able to take cash or checks for educational expenses.


Let's show the world how successful Remote Instruction can be. Please send pictures of your scholar during remote instruction! Pictures may be shared on social media or used for yearbook.

Families in Need
If you would like to Donate to Help our Socrates Families In Need. This money would be used for a Socrates Student Family or Staff Member who may be struggling with job loss, food insecurity or utility help. The Pandemic has created a lot of loss for the world and this our way of helping our Socrates Families in Need.  

Get Involved with Socrates PFI!

We need Homeroom Parents! HRPs will support the teacher and classroom in a variety of ways throughout the year. It’s a great way to build a relationship with your child’s teacher and get to know other families. Fill out the form to volunteer! 
The Socrates Academy PFI is looking for a Vice President of Student and Family Engagement. The VP is the point of contact for Homeroom Parents and helps develop and organize fun ways to create a sense of unity among students and families. The VP is an officer within the PFI and has a vote on all PFI issues. This is a great way to get involved and build relationships within the school community. Email for more details.
Drama teacher Kadey Ballard says that she gets better participation from students over ZOOM when holding theater movement sessions than she does in the classroom! A few younger siblings come in and start dancing too (around 12:50 minutes in). See how much fun we are having!
