ANNUAL FUND

EVERY CHILD.  EVERY CLASS.  EVERY DAY.

The Annual Fund remains Bayside Academy's top giving priority because it directly supports the school's greatest assets--our students and our teachers.  Dollars raised each year:

•   Attract superior faculty and staff
•   Provide students with small class sizes and individualized attention
•   Offer financial aid that fosters community
•   Support the extra-curricular activities in athletics and arts

 

EVERY CHILD

Your tax-deductible, unrestricted gift ensures that every Bayside student benefits from an exceptional educational experience beyond what tuition alone would cover. In fact, the Annual Fund helps close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Bayside education. It's fundamental to the school's operating budget and the reason we are so deeply appreciative of your participation.

EVERY CLASS

Annual Fund dollars are crucial to fostering a passion for learning for all of our students by supporting inspiring faculty and dynamic programming. Investment in the Annual Fund directly benefits all Bayside students because it helps them engage more deeply in core academic areas.

EVERY DAY

The Board of Trustees and the Head of School are committed
to minimizing tuition increases while providing every student the opportunity to reach his or her personal best. The strength of our Annual Fund comes from the collective participation of parents, alumni, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff, and other friends of the school.
