Student Support

All of our students need support in some way to raise their families. Our culture empowers young mothers to secure the most successful future possible for her children while offering as much scaffolding as we can on the way. We hold her up while she builds her life to sustain her. You can give to our Student Support Services which will be used to help our students navigate complex health and wellness systems, provide referrals to state and local agencies, and staffing for counseling and mental health needs.

Scholarships

Through community support and work with the Bonner Chiles Foundation, we have been able to offer $20,000 in scholarship funds in recent years. Some scholarships are designed with student need in mind, so not only can they be made available to pay for college tuition and fees, funds can go towards living expenses, transportation costs, child care fees and any other life expense that often prevent young mothers from completing their journey into and through higher education. Give to the scholarship fund in your own name to help a student secure her future.

Our historic site

The Bonner Elementary School site is located in the Midtown neighborhood in the heart of Daytona Beach, FL. The once-segregated school was built in 1926 and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. This building has always played an important role in the predominantly African-American community and continues to do so today. The Chiles Academy operates here, including an Early Head Start child care program that offers free child care to community children, and has partnered with other area programs and schools to share the facility. Give to the capital campaign today to help keep the important site alive and vibrant.
