Box Tops for Education

  1. Continue to clip and send in paper Box Tops that have dates on them — just like last year!
  2. Download the Box Top for Education app and choose American Renaissance School. This allows you to scan your receipt each time you shop, and the money goes directly to our school. We receive a check in December and April.

Thank you for your continued support of this program!

Standing News

Alumni Database

We're working diligently to create the first-ever ARS alumni database. We hope this will allow us to more easily keep up with our alumni, as well as give us the data we need to create an alumni showcase feature on our website. If you or someone you know is an ARS alumnus, please ask them to fill out this survey and submit a current headshot. We're especially interested in hearing from those who have started their careers and can serve as inspiration for our current students and prospective new families; however, we welcome any and all alumni contributions. Thank you!

Annual Fund

As a public charter school, ARS relies on the support of its community. Please consider setting up a recurring donation this year! You can choose to give as little as $5 per month, and this is easier for many families than making one big donation per year. Visit the Annual Fund page on our website to learn more and sign up!
