Help Bradenton Classical Academy Reach Goal

When those who govern fear the people, they will govern wisely.



Jean wrote:

“I’m a big fan of Bradenton Classical Academy because it teaches the Constitution, classic courses like handwriting, and promotes critical thinking and problem solving.  When completed, it will be a charter school in Manatee County with curriculum per Hillsdale College. It is so needed in Manatee County.


“As you know, Sherri (Davidson, founder) spoke at a Manatee Patriots meeting last year.  I remember her saying that her granddaughter knew the entire US Constitution by grade 3, impressive!!  That’s what inspired her to set up the program in Manatee County.”


Sherri Davidson wrote:

“We are moving forward and now need some funds!  We need to raise $25,000, half of which is needed within the next month.  I am sending a link requesting everyone forward it to friends and family so we can reach our goal! 


“Please go to Soaring to a new educational experience! | RallyUp.  Even if each person we know donated $10 we will reach our goal!”
