In order to provide an unparalleled education to our students, Thurgood Marshall Academy spends roughly $7,000 more per student than we receive from the District of Columbia’s per-pupil funding allocation. Because Thurgood Marshall Academy is a 501 (c)(3) organization, donations may be tax-deductible.
