Northstar Student Standing By Phone Booth

Support SCOPE, Northstar Academy's parent- and family-organized volunteer group!


SCOPE is Northstar Academy’s parent- and family-organized volunteer group. In coordination with school administration, SCOPE plans, supports, and implements activities for our students, staff, and parents in order to provide a well-rounded school experience.  We solicit volunteers to provide time (e.g., setup, clean-up, chaperone) and food (e.g., snacks, treats) for the activities we support. In previous years, funds received by SCOPE have been used to provide items such as an inflatable for our Homecoming event, a gaming trailer or Kona Ice Truck as treats for our students in the spring, disposable items and desserts for our Thanksgiving Luncheon, desserts or breakfast for our staff during Staff Appreciation Week, a graduation reception with gift bags for our seniors and, if needed, to supplement our Senior Scholarship Fund. All of these “extras” cost SCOPE approximately $25 – $30 per student.

This year, in lieu of a major fundraising event, we are asking families and volunteers to provide a donation to SCOPE so that we can better plan and budget our 2020-2021 planned activities. SCOPE does not receive funding from the school or carry a balance of funds from year-to-year, so we rely on these donations as our primary source of funding.

Please note that donations to SCOPE are not considered part of the school’s Annual Fund drive; however, your donation is fully tax-deductible.

Make your SCOPE donation via the online form below, or simply send your payment (make checks payable to Northstar Academy and write SCOPE DONATION on the memo line) to the school with your student or mail it to the school (Northstar Academy, Attn: SCOPE, 8055 Shrader Road, Richmond, VA 23294). If you have questions or would like to make a donation over the phone, call 804-747-1003 and ask to speak to the Development office

We appreciate any and all donations to help provide for our students and SCOPE supported activities. If you have any questions about SCOPE or our supported events or activities, please contact Lynda Kleene (SCOPE Parent Volunteer) at scope@northstaracademy.net. Let’s make the activities and events for our 2020-2021 school year GREAT!
