Like most private schools, The Independent School depends on the generosity of family, friends, faculty and alumni for the funding needed to go that extra mile. Tuition and fees cover about 80 percent of The Independent School's operating costs. The Independent Annual Fund provides that last 20 percent, which enables our school to fully implement the academic and co-curricular programs that ensure every Independent student a cutting edge, well-rounded education. Since The Independent School is a non-profit organization, all donations are tax-deductible.

Support is provided and greatly welcomed in many ways. We are thankful for your generosity through monetary means as well as those who dedicate their time to volunteer or market our school throughout the community. The Friends of the Fine Arts, The Booster Club, and The Parent's Group are always looking for people to assist with campus events and fundraising projects.

All of us can give something. Your participation at any level tells teachers, administrators, and students that you share their passion for this strong educational community.

We thank you in advance for your kindness, involvement, and continuing support of our educational mission.

For more information, please contact Chris English, Head of School, at 316-686-0152 ext. 401.
