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.

  • It does not matter what day you sign in

Security and Online Conferencing Apps

We are so thankful that ZOOM and many other virtual conferencing apps have made their platforms free for use during this time. We want all of our families to know that we are taking precautions to ensure your children are in a safe whether we are in a classroom or a video conference.

We know many of you are using these platforms at home, so we encourage you to take a minute to review safety settings of any online conferencing software you or your child is using to ensure your conversations remain private. We've provided a short list here, for ease of access.
