At Memphis Merit Academy Charter School, we firmly believe all students, regardless of their demographics, deserve a high-quality education. 


While Memphis Merit Academy will operate primarily on public funding, the success of Memphis Merit Academy, particularly in our start-up and founding years, depends heavily on the backing of committed, passionate donors.


Every child deserves a high-quality education.

Even with per-pupil funding from state and federal sources, there is a short fall between this revenue stream and the cost to educate a Memphis Merit Academy student, specifically relating to additional technology needs, enrichment opportunities, and general start-up operational costs.

There are several upcoming opportunities in our school for supporters to volunteer during the start-up phase. Our immediate needs will be for student recruitment and canvassing.
