NOVA Community Stories

Why Our Family Gives to NOVA

"My kids still applaud and honor NOVA for the impact those middle school years made on their lives, even now that three of them are in college and beyond. That's why we give."

Why do we give? Each of my five children found something special, something personally motivating, something energizing and empowering at NOVA. Each of my children was (and is) very different from the others.  When they attended NOVA, they had different academic and personal needs. Nevertheless, NOVA provided a nourishing ecosystem where each of them thrived. We know there are many kids out there who need a school like NOVA. And my family wants NOVA to be there to nourish those kids, too--each new year of 6th graders.

So we give to help NOVA keep its ecosystem vibrant and joyful and ready to serve its students. Thank you, NOVA Middle School, for your unique, amazing culture of experiences and curiosity! Thank you, NOVA teachers, for your dedication and imagination and intentional craft!  My kids still applaud and honor NOVA for the impact those middle school years made on their lives, even now that three of them are in college and beyond. That's why we give.

Being Accepted—No Matter Who You Are

"During elementary school years, my second child took only deli meat and cheese sandwich for lunch. Every single day...Little did I know why he limited his lunch options until he started attending NOVA."

Student Stories

Learning is a Journey and a Gift

"When I was in 5th grade, school was already pretty disappointing. Pointless work, and school was losing its meaning for me. Sixth grade at NOVA turned that upside down, and suddenly school was fun again and I couldn’t wait to go to NOVA every day."

Even on a Snow Day

"That’s what NOVA meant to our daughter. It was her school, it was her time, it was her place. It was offering something so special, something so worthwhile, that she was willing to go even on a snow day."
