Make a Difference Donate  


On graduation day, Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School students stand proud of the hard work behind them, confident in the classmates beside them, and prepared for the future in front of them.

Why support DLEACS?  The return on investment is unparalleled.

As the country struggles with successfully educating inner-city youth, especially boys, what happens every day at DLEACS works.

We are proud to be amongst innovation leaders in New Jersey schools.

Public funding per student of a charter school is substantially less than the amount budgeted per student by the local school district. As with most charter schools, fundraising is essential to our growth. When a donation is received, it is experienced as a vote of confidence in the work to sustain our mission and an act of caring to our wonderful students.

We welcome your interest and support. For additional information, please contact the Development Office at or call 201-433-5300 ext.109.
