A Co-op education is possible only when the entire Co-op community is involved.  Our school relies on parents, alumni, alumni parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends to provide financial support over and above tuition to cover the additional expenses of this singular education.

There are many ways to support the Co-op:

THE CO-OP FUND

The Co-op Fund offers you a way to support our unique educational program and bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Co-op education. Your tax-deductible donations go directly to our annual operating budget and also help to fund our tuition assistance program. As we launch the campaign each fall, we ask each member of our Co-op community to participate in the Co-op Fund at a meaningful level. With a goal of 100% participation from the Board of Trustees, parents, and employees, the support we get from these “internal” constituents gives foundations and other funding sources an indication of our institutional strength.

There are many convenient ways to give:
