Lion Crusade

Southern Wake Academy Lion Crusade Fund

The Lion Crusade Fund was established in October 2017 to help pay for the costs associated with our after school programs including: Clubs, Student Organizations, Athletics and Academic Competitions.  Our Lion Crusade is also a great way for Southern Wake Academy to build and foster community relationships.


We really appreciate our community’s support to help our school be able to offer all the wonderful after school activities and programs which are available to all our students.  This is why our goal is to partner with local businesses to provide advertising for you, while also creating a fun and unique fundraiser for our charter school. 100% of the funds will go directly to support these activities.
