Donate to the Annual Fund!

Gifts to the Annual Fund provide unrestricted, critical resources that support the essentials of a quality academic and experiential program.  This fund helps bridge the gap between state funding and the actual cost to educate each child. Your gift to the Annual Fund will have an immediate impact on current students.  Just a few examples of the things made possible through gifts to the Annual Fund include new textbooks, buses for expeditions and field work, and updated technology.  In addition, the Annual Fund allows us the freedom to direct funds to where they are needed most in each school, and flexibility throughout the year for unexpected costs/expenses.

 It is now common practice for a portion of our school's annual operating budget to be supported by philanthropic donations.  Every member of our community is asked to participate: current parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, board members, community members and other friends provide support each year. Giving enables you to help our school positively impact the lives of youth in our community.
