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 is 100% tax deductible. The Arete Project is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Thank you for being a part of this important work!

Our Capital Campaign

In spring 2019, the Arete Project kicked off a $1.2 million capital campaign towards the purchase and development of the Good River Campus – an 18-acre riverfront parcel near Glacier Bay National Park – destined to be the long-term home for our programs. We invite you to consider making a capital pledge as we realize this long-held dream. For further information – or to request a copy of our case statement or business plan – please contact Executive Director Laura Marcus at laura@areteproject.org
