Annual Fund: Chain Reaction

In the right conditions, positive energy will accelerate dramatically causing a chain reaction. St. Paul’s creates the perfect conditions to accelerate dramatic changes in the classroom and in the lives of the students. Strategic initiatives have created positive energy through professional development for our teachers, comprehensive STEAM curriculum, and 21stcentury learning spaces for first through eighth grade students. These updates have created momentum and exciting chain reaction for the students we serve.
We want to give each child access to programs and resources that will help them become confident learners, ethical leaders, and compassionate, engaged citizens. The Annual Fund allows us to meet the school’s most important priorities and provide a dynamic educational experience. It helps to bridge the gap that tuition alone cannot cover.

Our 2019-2020 Annual Fund goal is $275,000, allowing the generosity of our community to bridge the gap between tuition and the true cost of providing a dynamic educational experience. This academic year, the "gap" is nearly $1,500 per student. While gifts to the Annual Fund range from $10 to more than $10,000, we hope you will consider bridging the gap for one or more students.


How Is My Gift Used?

List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • Professional Deveopment

    As life-long learners, St. Paul's teachers and administrative staff seek out the best local and national professional development opportunities each year. Our staff are devoted to improving their craft in order to provide the best learning experience possible for our students. With the right support, they have demonstrated that they can transform learning in months, not years. Your gift supporting professional development will grow exponentially as dozens of teachers are inspired by new skills that will impact hundreds of students in our classrooms.  
  • General Support

    Our students spend their days engaging in thoughtful, innovative projects and building community together. They don't always see the important steps we take to keep the school running smoothly. Your gift toward general operating needs provides internet connectivity, a great maintenance team, and other necessities like electricity, water and recycling. These accelerate into the ability to research and communicate, stewarding great facilities in which to learn. Your gift impacts every student, teacher and inch of our campus.

  • Tuition Assistance

    More than 20 percent of students at St. Paul’s receive financial assistance with cost of tuition. These students and their families are important to our life together as a community, and to your child’s classroom. Every child – yours included – shares ideas, talents, creativity, compassion and kindness with her or his peers. Beyond St. Paul’s, we know that every St. Paul’s student will make our community, and our world, a better place.

  • Beyond the Basics

    It is our mission to develop confident learners, but we also believe that great students and future leaders need opportunities to grow into ethical leaders, and compassionate, engaged citizens. Chapel Leadership Team, service-learning programs, digital citizenship, arts and cultural appreciation are only a few of the programs that encourage community and self-awareness.
