A Message from Our Campaign Chair

Rob Mantaganese
Capital Campaign Chair


This is an exciting time for Par Excellence. Founded in 1988 by the Reverend Charles and Nora Noble, Par Excellence has grown from an enrollment of just a few students to more than 140 in our academy today. In order to continue Dr. Noble’s vision of providing a values-based education to Licking County residents of all races, ethnicities, faiths, and socio-economic statuses, our capital campaign is underway to retire the present indebtedness of the facility at 1350 Granville Road that serves the needs of our students and families. The Charles & Nora Noble Learning Center will focus on the educational experiences of children and adults in the 21st century. With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM), Par Excellence’s goal is to meet each child’s need by providing educational opportunities for the entire family. The new facility enables Par Excellence to offer a supportive environment and learning programs outside of traditional school hours – such as adult literacy courses, Internet-based classes, and curricula that will connect parents with their students. Funds raised through this campaign will be utilized to pay off or otherwise eliminate the $2 million mortgage on the “Charles & Nora Noble Learning Center” Building. Securing this funding will allow Par Excellence to concentrate its efforts more effectively towards ensuring building safety and maximizing the available space to accommodate the next phase of the Par Excellence vision. As you review this report, please consider a tax-deductible gift that will positively impact our community.
