The Cavalier Fund

The Cavalier Fund is an annual campaign that supports programs and activities designed to teach skills, shape character, and build friendships outside of the classroom. These include athletics, the arts, field trips, after-school programs, community-building activities, teacher appreciation, financial aid, and more.  

Atlanta Classical is committed to providing our young Cavaliers with the very best education possible, inside and outside of the classroom, but we have a challenge!

As an independently operated public school, our charter agreement funds only a portion of our expenses. Atlanta Classical uses these dollars to fund school-day operations like books, teacher salaries, classroom technology, etc. The public funding we receive is not enough to provide extracurricular programs and activities. These offerings are funded through donations to The Cavalier Fund, along with a combination of participation fees, grants, and PTCA events.

When you give to The Cavalier Fund, you enhance the education of every student from bright-eyed kindergarteners to seniors preparing to graduate. Together, we are educating knowledgeable, virtuous citizens and equipping our students to live well. 

Thank you for being an important member of the Atlanta Classical Academy family. Developing students in mind and character is only possible because of our vibrant, engaged community of parents and grandparents. 

Join the 2014 Circle!

In honor of the school’s founding year, all those who give $2,014 or more by June 30, 2023 will be listed as a member of The 2014 Circle and receive an invitation to the campaign celebration in the fall.
