Support A Return to Excellence in American K-12 Education

Hillsdale College’s K-12 Education Office directly supports 20 classical K-12 charter schools in 10 states through the Barney Charter School Initiative, with additional schools opening each year. More than 13,500 students are enrolled in these schools, with combined waiting lists of over 7,000. Dozens more charter and private schools across the country are also licensed to use Hillsdale’s K-12 curriculum, which includes a strong American civics component. Hillsdale Classical Schools place an emphasis on the liberal arts and cultivating moral and intellectual virtue. Through these efforts, Hillsdale College is returning excellence to K-12 education.

In keeping with its principles, Hillsdale College operates the K-12 Education Office without accepting one penny of taxpayer funding. Hillsdale's assistance to classical schools—from start-up to opening to ongoing academic support—is offered as a free-of-charge service to assist those who share our dedication to educational excellence. Will you lend your support to this worthy endeavor? 

And there's more good news... anonymous friends of Hillsdale College have committed to match any contributions for the Barney Charter School Initiative endowment dollar-for-dollar, up to $1.2 million total. You can make a gift—and thereby double its impact with this generous challenge—by donating now. 

With your partnership, we will continue to support and encourage those who are working hard to instill in young Americans the knowledge and character necessary to sustain our nation’s heritage of liberty.
