The Annual Fund at High Point directly impacts the experience that our students have on campus each day. Unlike most schools, High Point does not have an operating gap. This means that all donations received by High Point do not go to balance the budget bottom line. Instead, your donations supplement programs, facility improvements and education opportunities for the High Point community.
In 2016-2017, the Annual Fund provided for the following:
- Professional Development for faculty, directly tied to High Point’s Curriculum Guide and its implementation in the classroom.
- Parent Education Programs focused on internet safety, and helping children unplug from their electronic devices.
- Community Outreach Program through which students contributed over 500 hours of service.
- Key Educational Experts worked with our teachers in the following areas:
> Daily 5/CAFÉ
> Writer’s Workshop
In 2017-2018, the Annual Fund will continue to support the above-listed initiatives, and will also provide funding to transform our existing science lab into a STEAM Maker Space, accessible to students in all grades. To learn more about the Maker Space, click here.
Who participates and how much should I give?
Our goal, as with every year, is that 100% of parents, faculty, staff and board members participate in the Annual Fund. As a donor, you receive a tax benefit and your generous contributions allow for our tuition to remain affordable for all families.
We ask every family at High Point to participate at a level (listed below) which they feel is appropriate. The Annual Fund helps us achieve our goals, as outlined in our Strategic Plan, and we can only do so through your generous philanthropic contributions. We look to you, the High Point community, to join us in this effort of reaching our dollar goal, as well as our participation goal of 100%. Click here to make your gift today!
