Ways to Support ADS

ADS is a 501(c) non-profit institution. We rely on community support and generous donations to supplement the core academic program funded by state and federal funds. There are many ways to support our innovative educational program.

Donate to the Annual Fund

Generous cash donations are greatly appreciated. All donations are tax-deductible and go directly to our general fund to run the yearly operations of the school. 

Attend our Events

Buy tickets to ADS Fundraising Events! They are a fun way to enjoy the community, meet people with a common passion for innovative education, and support the school and special area programs!


Lend your time and creative talents to classroom and/or whole school needs. The ADS PTO helps coordinate the parent volunteer efforts through Class Parents and a Volunteer Log, or you can serve on one of the Campus Parent Committees.
