Contributing, respecting and serving our community is a core value at Acero Schools. With your help, we are able to further our mission of transforming minds through academic empowerment and success while also supporting our scholars and their families in crisis.
The Somos Acero Scholarship was created to recognize the achievements of our students and to support their educational journeys when they graduate from high school. A unique feature of the scholarship is that it is awarded to elementary school graduates as well as the graduates of our three high schools. Our goal is to encourage all of our students to pursue the collegiate education of their choice and to remain rooted in our community of scholars.
Offering laptops for home use provides a valuable option for students most interested in the online learning option afforded through #AceroLearnsEveryone, the network’s remote learning experience. At a total cost of $360 per Chromebook, please consider helping us secure additional technology resources for our outstanding scholars.
Housing and Food Security
Having a safe and secure home and consistent access to fresh and healthy food is foundational for our scholars and families to achieve their maximum potential. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, too many of our Acero families are suffering significant economic distress. Many have experienced layoffs, furloughs, lost employment opportunities and unexpected medical costs.
All funds raised go directly to scholarships, the purchase of student Chromebooks or to address housing and food insecurity.
