Highlands Annual Fund
The Highlands Annual Fund is our top fundraising priority. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide the critical, current-use, unrestricted dollars our school needs to provide an excellent student experience, maintain our buildings and facilities, and support our areas of greatest need. Each gift to our Annual Fund directly impacts each person at Highlands Latin.
Why does Highlands have an Annual Fund?
Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Highlands Latin School education. Gifts to the Annual Fund are an important source of unrestricted operating funds that the school uses to support associate, specialist, and lead teacher salaries, classroom materials, professional development, and tuition assistance.
For more details on the Annual Fund and how it works, please feel free to contact Nicole, Director of Development at Nicole@highlandslatin.org.
Why doesn’t the school just raise tuition to cover the difference?
While we do adjust our tuition each year, keeping tuition at a relatively low level allows us to make a Highlands education accessible to more families. Raising tuition to cover the full cost of educating a student would make attending Highlands Latin School unobtainable for many families and would be in contrast to our mission and vision.
