Our Annual Fund provides essential operating support. More than a quarter of the school’s budget depends on contributions from caring and generous individuals to help close the “gap” between the revenue provided by school district referral funds/tuition and the real cost of educating our students. Giving to the Annual Fund by means of one or more of the following options is an impactful way of supporting our students and the life-changing work of our teachers.
