What is my Annual Fund gift used for? The Annual Fund is the school's largest and most important annual fundraising effort.  Donations to the Annual Fund are put to immediate use supporting the academic programs, co-curricular activities and strategic priorities of the current school year. You can choose to support one of the funds below or leave your gift unrestricted.  Unrestricted gifts support all aspects an Academy education- one that challenges students' developing intellects and strengthens their character, preparing them for college and beyond.

Every student and teacher benefits from every gift to the Annual Fund. The very best independent schools in the country have the strongest participation in their respective Annual Funds. Whether your donation is $20 or $2,000, everyone's participation helps make our school stronger. 

How can you help? Participate in any way you are able, every school year.
