Today’s the day! Giving Tuesday is a globally recognized day of charitable giving and community involvement.
This year, we’re dedicating our Giving Tuesday to the Classical High School Art Department in order to fund art supplies and equipment!
We encourage everyone to consider CHSAA and, ultimately, CHS, in their charitable giving this year. Donate what you can and challenge a friend to so the same! To learn more or contribute, click the link below.
Thank you for joining us in our goal to Keep Classical Strong!

Building an Educated Community
Hope High Dollars for Scholars (HHDfS), an affiliate of Scholarship America, is excited to announce its 2017-2018 Annual Appeal. To date, $152,000 in scholarships has been awarded to 54 Hope scholars. With donor support, Hope High Dollars for Scholars can continue to build an educated community of Hope scholars – opening up the world and enabling our Hope graduates to become productive and engaged members of their communities.
“By providing much-needed financial resources to students, Hope High Dollars for Scholars removes some of the financial obstacles that prevent Hope High School students from obtaining a post-secondary education. Their generosity assists each recipient to achieve the American educational dream.”
Jimps Jean-Louis, Hope Guidance
“A college education and scholarship allowed me to enjoy a wonderful career, take pride in seeing my children go to college and have their own wonderful careers, as well as having the time and resources to volunteer in my community. I want the same for these Hope students.”
Marsha Kirshenbaum, Hope ’61
Here’s how Hope High Dollars for Scholars is changing lives and launching careers:
“I am so excited to be in graduate school at RIC studying for my masters in social work. My gap year, working for City Year as a mentor in a Providence middle school, cemented my determination to work with disadvantaged kids and families.”
Chris Velasquez, 2012 HHDfS Scholar
“I am an Ithaca College graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree. I am working as a behavior specialist while studying for my dental boards. I plan to enroll in dental school in Fall 2018. I shall never forget my feeling of confidence when I received my scholarship.”
