To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Annual Giving

Annual Giving is the Academy's yearly campaign to enhance academics, spiritual programming, facilities, and personnel that will benefit all students. It's also our way of keeping tuition affordable and supporting the financial aide program. Strong private school programs require a thoughtful investment from all stakeholders, and tuition alone does NOT cover the cost of educating each student. In fact, to keep our tuition affordable to as many families as possible, we budget at a $3,000 shortfall for each child. It is then our responsibility to turn to parents, alumni, grandparents, and community friends and ask them to help us make up that deficit.

We’ve committed over $1,800,000 in financial aid to 38% of our student body for the 2022-23 school year.
