Why Support the Arete Project?

  • We provide a transformative, expansive education. We pursue learning not for grades, but out of desire for true understanding of the world, the self, and others
  • The Arete Project applies a unique approach to leadership. There are no simulated scenarios at Arete – only the questions encountered in real life, democratic governance, and organizational operation.
  • Your dollar goes far. Arete Project programs cost roughly $500 per student per week.
  • Make one donation and do twice the good.Your donation supports The Arete Project. The Arete Project labor pillar supports the Arthur Morgan School, an innovative middle school in rural Appalachia, and Inian Islands Institute, a field school in Southeast Alaska. With one contribution you assist not only The Arete Project but our host campuses as well.
  • Your donation will be 100% tax deductible. The Arete Project expects to have 501(c)3 status by early 2019. All donations made after that time and within 27 months prior will be tax deductible.
