Momenta is Proof

Momenta is proof that every public elementary and middle school can become a phenomenal center of educational excellence that develops each child into an engaged, enthusiastic and confident student. By supporting Momenta, you give teachers and principals the power to transform their schools and nurture students prepared to excel in high-school, college and life.

While payments from school districts cover some of the costs of our services, a financial gap remains. We bridge this gap through gifts and grants from individuals, foundations, corporations, and the MA Legislature.
