Help Acera Thrive

Acera always has been, and still is, a true start up, without the profit reward but instead with the reward of students who have found a sense of place and a sense of self, where they can live without apology in their startling skill, robust creativity and exuberance. 

In order to keep our tuition as low as possible and provide our students an education in which they thrive, Acera relies on the generous donations of the community, collaborators, families and friends of Acera. 

Spread the word. Help Acera thrive with a gift today. How?

  • Invite grandparents and friends to support Acera.
  • Ask your employer to match your donation.
  • Follow us on Facebook and Twitter. 

Every gift counts! Thank you so much for your support!

Acera School is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Contributions made to Acera are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Contact for further information.
