Morey Public School Academy Fund

The Morey Public School Academy (PSA) Fund was started in 2013, by the Morey Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), to create a more sustainable fundraising mechanism to support the school’s students and teachers.  The fund is an additional way for the school to engage and connect with the larger mid-Michigan community by encouraging local businesses and individuals to invest in this alternative educational environment.

The Morey Public School Academy is a pre-school through eighth grade Montessori school located on Blanchard Road in Shepherd, Michigan. Morey's combination of small class size, mixed grade levels and family-like environment creates a wonderful learning experience for its students. Morey uses the Montessori Method as its educational philosophy, providing a well-rounded, balanced education that challenges students to achieve their best through freedom with responsibility.  The students work at their own pace, are able to choose the sequence of their daily work, learn from mixed age peers, in specially prepared classroom environments, with Montessori-trained teachers and teacher’s assistants.

The fund’s purpose is to support the education of our students, both inside and outside the classroom.  Proceeds from the fund will be used to supplement the students’ educational experience, primarily by purchasing classroom materials, funding field trips, hosting quality assemblies, and supporting the school’s needs as it grows.

Donors to the Morey PSA Fund will support the continued success of the school as it works to empower and equip students with a solid academic foundation, while encouraging them to become well-rounded, productive members of our community.
