The Annual Fund Appeal provides unrestricted funds that are critical for the day-to-day operations of the school, bridging the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each child. In the past two years, these funds have also been used for the unexpected expenses we face related to COVID-19. These generous contributions, from our entire community—parents, trustees, alumni, grandparents, friends, and others, support all areas of the institution, including academics, the arts, teacher training and development, operations, and financial aid. Tuition alone covers about 70% of the school’s annual budget but we rely on meeting the remaining 30% through donations and fundraising events. We know that with strong vision, and community support, we can thrive through change and imagine a path forward for progress and well-being. Every contribution, small or large, helps us reach our goal.
