Donations to the Schoolhouse support our current students, teachers and program, and also ensure that the benefits of a Schoolhouse education will be available for generations to come.
Like most independent schools, tuition does not cover the entire cost of educating a child. We count on voluntary support from our parents, grandparents, alumni families and other members of the school community to bridge the gap between tuition revenue and operating expenses.
The Annual Fund is the heart of Schoolhouse’s philanthropic efforts. Every year, more than 90% of Schoolhouse families support the school’s Annual Fund — a clear measure of their belief in the value of a Schoolhouse education.
No matter the size, all gifts collectively grow Schoolhouse’s educational resources, help us plan for the future, and allow us to fund unexpected opportunities. Your generosity also enables us to attract and retain a talented, caring faculty.
All contributions are fully tax-deductible.
