What is the Annual Fund?
Donations to the Annual Fund go directly to support the Academy’s operating budget. With the support of parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, foundations, corporations, school board members and faculty, the “gap” between tuition revenues and balanced budget is filled. This includes but is not limited to:
- Provides an academically rigorous program
- Promotes a Christ-centered community
- Sustains small class sizes
- Underwrites enrichment experiences like field trips
- Offers a financial aid program to families in need
- Maintains campus buildings and facilities including technology and curriculum purchases
