We recently awarded the sum of $5,000 to the Christa McAuliffe Regional Charter Public School through our Charitable Foundation.
According to Foundation President Robert P. Lamprey, the grant was awarded in support of the School’s plans to move from its present Clinton Street location in Framingham to a larger facility where both building and grounds will better meet the unique needs of its Expeditionary Learning program.
One of only 165 Expeditionary Learning Schools in the nation and 15 in Massachusetts, McAuliffe Regional will reach full capacity in the coming school year with 306 students in grades 6, 7 and 8, and a long waiting list. The School hopes to increase enrollment capacity over the next three years, said Executive Director Kristin Harrison.
