Springville Community Academy is currently raising funds through the community to help with the financial obligation of the purchase.

Springville Community Academy is 40% of the way to our goal. So far, $8,305 has been raised in donations.

On March 16, 2023, the North Lawrence Community School Board voted unanimously to sell their remaining property around the former Springville Elementary School to the Springville Community and Rural Foundation, Inc. (SCARF) for $20,500. SCARF is the 501c3 Nonprofit organization that is doing business as (dba) Springville Community Academy.

SCA needs help offsetting the cost of this exciting acquisition. If you can donate, great! If not, please share this campaign, which may lead to other donations.
