Donate to TAS

Year after year, your continued and generous support enables us to serve the community we love, offering a dynamic, hands-on education to the youth of South Los Angeles.

We are a publicly funded school, yet public funds are limited in what they provide to students. Your donations to the TAS Foundation are crucial to the continued success of The Accelerated Schools. We pride ourselves in being able to offer such facets of a well-rounded education like our music department and after-school sports programs.

Any contribution is extremely appreciated.
