Haas Hall Academy has proven itself successful in preparing Northwest Arkansas scholars for college. With your support, we now have an opportunity to enhance the creative side of education by developing skills for tomorrow’s engineers, scientists, musicians, artists and developers.
The Ingenuity Center will enhance the learning experience for all scholars with new interactive programming such as electronics, metalworking, 3D printing, laser cutting, pottery and textile design.
Our vision is to create the Ingenuity Center in the building just south of our current Starr Scholar Center in Fayetteville. Thanks to a $1 million gift from the Walton Family Foundation, Haas Hall Academy is more than halfway to the goal of raising $1,850,000 to make the Ingenuity Center a reality.
An additional $850,000 needs to be raised to complete the renovation and furnishing of the Ingenuity Center. Your gift will help to enhance the learning environment for our current scholars and ensure that more scholars in Northwest Arkansas will benefit from the free, accelerated, college-preparatory experience that Haas Hall Academy has offered for the past 12 years.
Visual Design Studio
Website design, coding, software development & information technology classes will better prepare scholars for their college and and career experiences.
Hands-on drawing, painting, sculpture, & pottery classes will feature a kiln, drying racks and desktop easels to foster scholar creatively like never before.
For the first time in Haas Hall history, a space will be dedicated to display original scholar artwork to share creative pieces with others outside of art classes.
A dedicated space for physics and physical science will engage eager scientific minds, enabling scholars to find answers, perform procedures, and collect and analyze laboratory evidence.
In a space dedicated to musical study, Haas Hall scholars will enhance their creative thinking and con dence, develop their performance skills, and master memorization and coordination.
3D Design Studio
The 3D Design Studio will feature 3D printers and CNC work stations for a variety of engineering-based projects to support Haas Hall’s innovative STEAM curriculum.
Your gift will help to enhance the learning environment for our current scholars and ensure that more scholars in Northwest Arkansas will bene t from the free, accelerated, college-preparatory experience that Haas Hall Academy has offered for the past 12 years.
“The additional classroom space will allow our exceptional faculty to teach classes that they do not have the space or resources to do in our current location,” said Dr. Martin W. Schoppmeyer, Jr. “Given the limited funds provided to charter schools in Arkansas, the need for private support to give our scholars the experience they desire is a necessity.”
We ask that you consider a legacy gift to permanently support the Ingenuity Center at Haas Hall Academy. A naming gift places your imprint on the Ingenuity Center and secures a hands-on learning experience for Haas Hall Academy scholars. For more information about how legacy gifts are used, please contact Stacy Keenan.
Named gifts may pay tribute to – or memorialize – individuals, organizations, or a cause. The Ingenuity Center offers naming opportunities at a variety of gift levels. Donors can make an outright gift or spread payments over five years. In-kind gifts providing specific materials needed to furnish the building are also welcome.
