Impact of Giving
Each year, 15% or more of our total revenues come from fundraising. This culture of philanthropy and investment in our community allows our students to be both embraced and challenged in an environment rich with racial, ethnic, religious and socioeconomic diversity. It allows our Academic Team to pursue learning opportunities that excite and inspire them, in the service of implementing a curriculum that is as innovative and creative as our students deserve. Your support matters, and we are grateful for it.
