The Annual Fund Helps Here…

February 05, 2019

When I think of the phrase “The tide rises all boats” it makes me think of the Independent Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). You might wonder why it’s so important to our school. So, maybe this can offer some perspective.

Since 1980, countless students have been given the opportunity to attend Independent because of the generous supporters of TAP. The program offered support to students who have gone on to start businesses, attend graduate school, and give back to their community.

Currently, 138 students, in pre-K thru 12th grade, from 100 families (approximately 30%) receive assistance through TAP. The assistance we offer varies in level covering 10 to 75 percent of tuition expenses. Every family at Independent invests something to their students’ education.

We want to maintain this incredible opportunity for our students and respectfully ask you to consider a gift to the Independent School Tuition Assistance Program.

It is so important for our students and would mean so much for a family willing to make their own financial sacrifice, so their student is able to attend The Independent School. We thank you for your consideration of this important program.

Please give to the Annual Fund and be the tide that helps rise the boats of tuition assistance. It makes the school affordable to a wider range of students, bringing your child the many benefits of a diverse student population in a supportive community.
