Through the generosity of fellow parents, the Academy of Holy Names can build even further momentum as it continues to offer our children an ever-expanding set of opportunities for personal development that is core to its mission. By participating in the Parent Annual Fund at any level, you are joining together as ONE Academy family and the momentum continues.

The Parent Annual Fund helps to preserve and enhance programs that are not covered by tuition. The PAF is the best way possible for parents to help make a difference in the future of the Academy. It is necessary to sustain the life of the school through enriched academic, athletic and fine arts programs, financial aid, faculty development and overall operating expenses.

Why not just raise tuition rather than solicit gifts? This may seem like the quickest solution, but we wish to keep tuition as low as possible for several reasons. The Academy is sensitive to financial considerations of all of our families, therefore, we do not want to place our school at a significant competitive disadvantage by unduly increasing tuition. Additionally, there is a financial advantage that annual donations provide to those who itemize their tax returns.

Our goal is 100% participation! Participation by every family, each at their own level, helps the Academy achieve this goal. All gifts, large and small, make a difference. The support of every family is an important, symbolic indicator of our commitment to share in achieving the unique mission of the Academy of the Holy Names.
