Each year, like independent schools nationwide, Collegiate raises money for its Annual Fund to bridge the $1,700 gap between tuition and the cost of delivering a Collegiate education. We are proud to announce that our total amount raised has surpassed $590,000.
 
There is still time to make your give! If you have pledged an amount to the campaign, please pay online prior to June 15.
 
 
Annual Fund dollars impact the day to day operations of our school.
 
Stand out. Be Collegiate. Give back!
