NSF Launches $25K Matching-Fund Campaign for NPS Calculus Project

The Newton Schools Foundation has announced that anonymous donor will match up to $25,000 in donations made in March for the Newton Public School’s Calculus Project.  The Calculus Project, successful since its start in 2012, works in all of Newton’s middle and high schools to have more African American, Hispanic, and low-income students successfully complete calculus in high school, as a path to success in college.  The program provides intensive, small-group summer classes, enrichment activities, and year-round mentoring and tutoring.  While the NPS operating budget funds part of the program, tax-deductible donations via the NSF are needed for the summer program, tutoring, enrichment activities, and supplies.
