OUR VISION: To see every child reach their greatest, God-given potential.
OUR MISSION: To advance the realization of excellence in underserved and marginalized children by opening the doors to opportunity.
OUR MODEL: The Arete model is a holistic journey of academic formation and personal growth, which empowers children to reach their highest potential.
Through private contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, Arete Scholars awards need-based K-12 scholarships and empowers parents to place their children in private schools that best suit their unique gifts and learning needs. Since 2010, our partners have helped us grant nearly 15,000 K-12 scholarships worth nearly $75 million.
We currently operate under tax credit scholarship programs in Georgia and Louisiana. Scholarship eligibility is based on the income guidelines for the federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program (FRL), and award amounts range from $4,000 to more than $4,800 per year.
