Support The Elevated Places Building Fund Drive!




Our ultimate vision is to educate, inspire, and motivate students to grow, succeed and lead the nation! We have reached our maximum capacity and are turning away children. We average 8 to 10 new students per year. The one thing we all have in common is our dedication to educating our children. And the more donors we have, the bigger impact we can all make. Together. We are in need of a facility that is move in ready; meaning, a place that was formerly used as a school or daycare. We believe a minimum of 4,000 sqft is a manageable size for us at this stage of our development. This would allow us to meet our next milestone of 90 children.
