Every Gift Makes a Difference

Every gift makes a difference. Each day, our students arrive at The Independent School with aspirations. A sixth-grader envisions the day he will play his first varsity game or get the lead in the fall play. A senior reflects on her nearly-complete high school experience as she readies herself for college and dreams of new opportunities.

Your support of the Independent Annual Fund helps turn our students’ hopes into realities by helping The Independent School:

  • Attract and retain outstanding faculty
  • Sustain our financial aid program
  • Acquire effective teaching tools, technology, and supplies
  • Keep our building and grounds in top condition
  • Equip our student-athletes, musicians, and actors with all they need to succeed
  • Enhance our curriculum with meaningful service learning opportunities

These are just a few of the many important investments made possible through the Independent Annual Fund. They represent gifts from families, friends and alumni. Large or small, every gift helps make a difference for every Independent School student.

The patio will hold bricks purchased in honor or in memory of our Independent students, families, and alumni.  Proceeds from the purchase of the bricks will be used to help with the maintenance of our Panther buses and vans, so we can get our students to their games, concerts, or field trips in comfort and style. Please complete the order form and return it to any Division Office or to Celia Cayless, Director of Development & Alumni Relations.
