Groves Academy works. Kate and Dan recently shared their daughter Sydney’s story of success and transformation:
Before Groves, Sydney’s school life was very frustrating, disappointing and quite frankly sad for our family. Sydney cried every day when she came home from school during the early weeks of first grade. As the year progressed, she struggled in every subject, especially reading. Our family decided to start seeking other options and her tutor suggested a neuropsych evaluation. We found out she has dyslexia, ADHD and dysgraphia. Groves Academy was recommended to us and after our school tour we knew Groves was the place for Sydney.
After the first month at Groves, Sydney came home happy and she understood her homework. We felt relieved and thought this is really working. Our home life became peaceful and enjoyable. During her first year at Groves, Sydney won the spelling bee! Just one year earlier she was struggling and couldn’t read. We couldn’t believe it! In less than two years, our daughter has been transformed into a confident student who loves to learn and loves school.
Not only has Groves taught our daughter to read, it has also provided a solid foundation for her. Groves has given Sydney confidence and skills to advocate for herself. Sydney understands she learns differently, and that is okay.
Your generosity and support help families like Sydney’s every day. During the last 45 years, Groves Academy has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of students like Sydney who need the unique support that only Groves can provide.

Why support Groves Academy Annual Fund?
The annual fund is an important part of Groves Academy advancement program.
Annual Fund contributions are essential to the day to day operations of the school, and are 100% tax-deductible for the donor. These funds help fill the gap in the operating budget that is not covered by tuition and other fees. They help to pay for everything that facilitates the teaching in the classrooms, like instructional materials and equipment, and facilities and utilities.
Why is donating to the Annual Fund important?
The school’s financial strength is dependent upon the participation of all donors. Your participation in the Annual Fund generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join you in supporting the school, and it is a key indicator to foundation and corporate donors that we have consistent support from those we serve, both past and present.
