Deeply Rooted - Annual Fund 2017/18

The future of our school is deeply rooted in our past. We are grateful for the generosity of those who have experienced the fruit of our ministry – our alumni, parents, school board, staff, and church members. Their commitment to preserving our tradition of academic excellence in a caring Christian community ensures that we are able to shape future generations of bold, compassionate leaders.

No matter the size, your gift to the Annual Fund is an investment that directly benefits our students. The fund provides support for athletics, the arts, music, the latest technology, teaching tools and equipment, classroom renovations, and the continued development of our Nature Explore outdoor classroom.

  • To replace sales based fundraising, such as wrapping paper, magazine drives, and entertainment books
  • To avoid substantial yearly tuition increases in our Infant Care Center, Pre-School and Day School
  • To upgrade academic, technology, and school equipment
