Questions & Answers
Q: Why doesn’t the school just raise tuition to cover all of its expenses and not ask for gifts every year?
A: St. Anne’s was founded in 2002 to be an Episcopal School that would welcome students and families from all backgrounds. Charitable gifts allow us to embrace our Episcopal identity and ensure the rich diversity of our student body – which enhances the educational experience for everyone. Roughly 1/3 of our students receive financial aid. Funds are provided by earnings from our endowment fund and the generous support of donors. Your gifts make the school affordable to a wider range of students, bringing your child the many benefits of social and economic diversity.
- Help fund Financial Aid
- Ensure that the endowment lasts forever by reinvesting funds; and
