People tend to think of independent schools as high performing, elitist, and expensive, Aaron says.
With this year’s senior class earning the highest average SAT scores across York and Adams counties, the first is certainly true for Logos Academy.
Their average student, though, pays just $1,800 a year for tuition, and two-thirds of students at Logos Academy live right around the poverty line.
Like the leaders of the other nonprofits, Aaron says it takes more than just his organization alone to fix the problems his students face.
“You can’t simply educate your way out of poverty,” he says.
Housing, healthcare, education, job training — all of these areas mutually impact each other, Aaron says.
That’s why it’s important for leaders who work in these service agencies to work together.
Sometimes, working together is as simple as Logos offering its space to house a project or event.
Other times, it reaches an individual level.
