Who We Are & Our Need
St. Abraham’s Classical Christian Academy
was founded in 2009 in Santa Cruz, California by a few families who had heard of a renewal of the classical education tradition that has been sweeping the country for the last three decades. What started with 19 students in the fall of 2009 has now flourished into a student population of nearly 150. Located in beautiful coastal California, we are at the midpoint of two thriving counties, Santa Cruz and Monterey. We are a K-12 school with over 20 local churches represented and a small student to teacher ratio. We are operating financially in the black and growing in numbers to fill the space of a beautiful school campus. We now have the opportunity to make our current campus our permanent home.
We were notified that the owner intended to sell the property. In seeking the counsel of many, we resolved to put in an offer to purchase the property. Though we had to compete with other buyers, God has given us favor in the eyes of the seller. Our offer was then accepted by the sellers, and we are now officially moving forward through escrow towards the purchase. We now have the opportunity to purchase the property with funds that are either donated or loaned to the school. This YouCaring page is to facilitate donor involvement. We are looking for donors who value the mission of St. Abraham’s and want to partner with us to provide a permanent location
, where we can grow our children through quality academics and a community environment that cultivates Christian discipleship and care of the whole child.
All institutions undergo pivotal moments that are critical to the future life of that institution. St. Abraham’s is now at a pivotal moment in its life. Just a few years ago, we would have never been in a place to even consider such a large investment in our future, and though we are still a young school, we now have this opportunity in front of us. Having ownership of the property would allow us to have the security of permanence, the freedom to shape our campus according to our needs and the long-term financial advantage that will help facilitate growth into the future. Please prayerfully consider joining with us to make this happen!
*We are also simultaneously seeking investors who would be willing to contribute to a community fund, functioning as a loan to St. Abraham's. This loan will make up the difference between donations and the purchase price. This is an interest-bearing loan secured by the property. If you have interest in this opportunity, please visit the lending platform here for more information.
