The Annual Appeal is a vital source of income, a resource that is fundamental to the school’s yearly effort to maintain a balanced budget while adding value to our educational programs.  A gift to the Annual Appeal helps to bridge the gap between tuition income and the actual cost of educating a child.  The gap between tuition expenses is about $2,000 per student.  We want to keep tuition affordable for all students, and over 40% of our families receive financial aid.
