Xavier Charter School (Xavier) is a public, tuition-free school like other traditional public schools. However, other traditional public schools have legal authority to levy taxes to finance their facility expansions, but Xavier and other public charter schools do not have tax levy authority under current state laws. Consequently, Xavier’s ability to expand beyond our current capacity of 700 students is completely limited, leaving more than 400 children on the waiting list year after year. Your donation (minimum of $25) will help Xavier to build a reserve fund for future growth that includes facility expansion and other capital projects. Your donation to Xavier is tax deductible so keep the receipt for your record.
