Giving to Groves
Thanks to the generosity of our friends and family in the community, Groves Academy educates nearly 240 students a year in our day school and impacts more than 4,000 families through our various outreach programs. Our supporters help make Groves the leading school for students with learning disabilities and attention disorders in the state and a center for literacy instruction and education.
Groves Academy was the vision of a dedicated group of parents who wanted to establish a school for students with learning disabilities in Minnesota. From the time the school first opened its doors in 1972 with an enrollment of 28 students, Groves Academy has evolved into a nationally renowned school and center for literacy. Over the past 40 years, Groves Academy has:
• Raised more than $7.5 million in scholarship money
• Provided scholarships to nearly 1,200 students
• Maintained an average class size of 8 students
• Completed a $7 million renovation and expansion of its facilities
• Launched a community outreach program that provides diagnostic testing, summer school, teacher training and educational workshops and symposia to more than 4,000 people per year
• Twice received the U.S. Department of Education’s Excellence in Education Award
Groves Grandparents Scholarship Fund
The Groves Grandparents Scholarship was recently established to honor our generous grandparents who support their Groves Academy students. Groves knows that grandparents play an important role in the lives of their grandchildren.
Groves Academy believes in the importance of education as a positive force in the lives of children who have learning, attention and language disorders. We believe that children can confidently face their challenges and achieve greater success when the educational environment addresses their individual academic, social and emotional needs.
Thank you for supporting your Groves grandchild. One-third of our students receive scholarship assistance to be able to attend Groves Academy. Groves does not believe that the cost of an education should be a deterrent to a prospective student. As such, Groves Academy raises more than $850,000 each year exclusively for scholarships to meet the needs of families who could not otherwise afford a Groves Academy education.
