SUPPORT

Fundraising offers a variety of ways that our school staff, families, and surrounding community can provide support to the school. We rely on a robust fundraising program that contributes to the operational budget and in turn offsets our tuition costs. With a variety of fundraising events, we offer different ways for our families and members to get involved. Questions about our fundraisers or fundraising plans? Email the fundraising committee for more information.
