Research has shown that it takes about $12,000 to adequately serve one at-risk student per year. Boulder Prep recieves about $8500 per student per year through state/district funding. We rely on grants and donations to make up this gap. To adequately meet the complex needs of our students, we have more staff than traditional schools and we offer a wide variety of programming including intensive social emotional supports. We are seeking funds for the programs listed below.

If you are moved by what we do and want to support the school, please consider making a donation. You can use the link below to make a donation through paypal. Checks can also be mailed to or dropped off at: Boulder Preparatory High School 5075 Chaparral Court Boulder, CO 80301 Attn: Lili Adeli


Capital Campaign

$2000 will help us buy new furniture for one classroom allowing us to create a modernized feel with collaborative learning opportunities.

Scholarship Fund

$1000 will fund a scholarship for a student from a low-income family to make the transition to college. Boulder Prep prepares students for college, but often the financial barrier prevents students from enrolling. A contribution here will help a student realize his or her dream of a better future.

Afterschool Activity Program

$500 will provide fifteen students with safe, sober afterschool activities where they can develop positive relationships with peers and teachers. This program has increased student academic performance and reduced substance abuse. Activities include plays, bowling, and museum visits.

Bus Tickets for Students

$250 will provide our students in need with bus tickets each day for a week. Economic hardships have made it difficult for some of our students to get to school. Boulder Prep provides bus ticket to get home and back to school as long as the student shows a completed daily academic progress report.

Books for a Classroom

$250 will pay for books so that each student will have his/her own copy to highlight and annotate. This is an important part of preparing them for college and helping them get used to taking notes as they read.

Arts Program

$250 will provide materials for one 8-week art class with 15 students. Students have the opportunity to express their creativity through art history, painting, drawing, dance, pottery, photography, or video and music production.

Culinary Arts Program

$200 will provide fresh produce to be used in our food-service program each week. Breakfast and lunch is prepared daily by our own chef and the service learning class. To avoid stigmas in our small community, all students eat for free. Including fruits and vegetables and wholesome ingredients teaches students about healthy eating and ensures that students have adequate nourishment for the day.

Glasses for Students

$150 will pay for a complete eye exam and glasses for a student. Each year, 5-10 students struggle in classes because their families do not have insurance or money for glasses.
