Help Transform a Life Today
“I want to thank you all because you believed in me. You saw past the shell of a person I was, and saw who I could become.”
Together, we can ensure that every child who enters the O-School’s yellow door has the tools they need to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Your generosity helps the O-School bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the cost to serve our students, and it allows the School to enrich its programs in important ways, such as:
- Expanding our educational and therapeutic programs
- Recruiting and retaining the finest faculty, therapists and mentors
- Providing financial assistance to students in need
