Gifts & Giving

For over 100 years, alumni, parents, families and friends have generously donated dollars as well as their gifts of time to help create and sustain a thriving college preparatory environment at Columbus Academy.
A community of philanthropy
As an independent school, Columbus Academy designs its own programs and operates without financial support from local or federal taxes. Therefore, like all independent schools, we rely on tuition income, Annual Fund contributions, endowment income and other fundraising activities to support our innovative and challenging academic programs.
