Each year, donors who make gifts of $1,000 or more provide over 80% of our total Annual Giving support, and the Founders Society recognizes the critical support of these individuals and families. The generosity of Founders Society members demonstrates a strong belief in the school’s community of families, alumni, educators, and students. The various recognition levels contained within the Founders Society reflect the history and values of our school. We encourage you to consider joining with a qualifying gift this year.
