Frequently Asked Questions
Charitable gifts raised in support of the Excellence Fund and the Annual Auction are needed to bridge the gap between actual tuition income and actual operating costs of the school. Tuition alone does not cover the total cost of educating our students.
The Excellence Fund helps offset annual operating expenses. Gifts pledged to the Excellence Fund are generally payable no later than the end of the academic year. Capital campaigns are conducted to provide significant funds for construction, renovations, or extensive equipment purchases. Contributions made to a capital campaign are generally pledged over three to five years.
While the Excellence Fund seeks unrestricted gifts, if there is a project or program at SCS that you are interested in supporting with a gift, please let us know.
