One of the major strengths of our schools is the support we enjoy from our community of parents, current and past. Your donations of time, talent and resources support our mission and help us to create an outstanding educational experience for our students.
A Rolling Hills Prep education is an investment in your child's future. It is a choice you make, to provide your child with the best possible education he or she can receive.
First, we appreciate the time you commit to supporting your child and the school. From helping with homework to volunteering at school events and attending performances and games, we rely on you. As parents at the school you are automatically members of the Parent Association, and we ask that you plan to volunteer for some activity during the year ahead.
Second, like all other independent schools, we ask every family to make a gift to the school above and beyond tuition. Though tuition is an important source of revenue for the school, those dollars alone do not cover the full cost of educating a child. Your yearly gift to the Rolling Hills Prep School and Renaissance School Annual Fund enhances the education our students enjoy.
From SmartBoards to athletic equipment, from field trips to art shows, from faculty support to campus maintenance, annual giving dollars provide an immediate and direct benefit to RHP and Renaissance students. We expect every family to make a donation consistent with the family's situation, and we appreciate and value every donation. The Annual Fund is a tax-deductible way to impact your child's education directly.
We have made contributing as easy as possible, including providing the option to donate online.
Annual giving is our primary fundraising priority each and every year. Additional ways to support the school include:
- Special Events - The Spring Auction and Gala is a fun way to spend time with fellow members of the school family and provide support for our schools.
- Scholarship Fund - This fund supplements the Flexible Tuition Fund and allows additional students, with special skills and abilities, to attend our schools.
- Capital Campaign - The school is currently investigating the feasibility of undertaking a major fundraising campaign to support the construction of the first permanent facility of our new campus.
Rolling Hills Prep School is fortunate to have in its community a parent population who understands that support of the school is essential. In addition to giving to the school philanthropically, a majority of our parents volunteer for large and small assignments equaling thousands of hours of vital support. That contribution is very much appreciated by the entire school community.
I welcome your questions and your insights and thank you for your participation in our efforts. Please stop by the office and say hello anytime.
