Like all public charter schools, PAVE schools receive less per pupil funding than traditional public schools.
  • Each year, PAVE’s operating need is supplemented by private dollars. PAVE is able to leverage private support against public funding to provide maximum return on investment for private donors.

PAVE and City Squash have both opened so many doors. I see students who have gone before me to attend top schools, and I know I can get there too. It has been incredible for me to have adults outside my family who want to help me get to the next level academically and as a person

Judah, PAVE Scholar Class of 2020

PAVE taught me how to be a leader. Even if the road gets tough, you have to keep trying. With the support PAVE gave me, I learned that if you approach challenges with excitement and the willingness to try, you can do great things.

Lizbeth, PAVE Alumna Class of 2016, Junior at Millennium High School

The experience at Deerfield Academy’s The Experimentory taught me to make new friends and step outside of my comfort zone. I discovered that I could succeed by being myself and being open to new experiences. I really appreciate the opportunity that was given to me.

Nirel, PAVE Scholar, Class of 2020

My daughter April, now a junior at Sunset Park High School, graduated from the first PAVE class. She has been on the honor roll four times and dreams of going to John Jay College of Criminal Justice so she can become a court officer. She is a leader in her community. I feel so grateful to PAVE. The teachers were always backing her up and supporting her and gave her a solid base from which to launch into the world. The school transforms lives!
