The Garces Fund
The Garces Fund
We are asking our families, donors, and alumni to regard The Garces Fund as their first giving priority. Tuition only covers 85% of the costs to operate our school. The Garces Fund is the key component to “Bridge the Gap”. The Garces Fund provides essential resources, beyond tuition, which are critical to the operation of the school and our ability to provide outstanding academic and co-curricular programs. Unrestricted gifts contributed to The Garces Fund support and advance educational opportunities for our students in a variety of programs, including FFA, athletics, fine arts, mock trial, robotics, campus ministry, and ASB. In short, The Garces Fund is essential to providing each student with a unique "Garces Experience” that provides each student a place of belonging.
Why is The Garces Fund so important?
Tuition covers only 85% of the day-to-day costs of running our school. We keep tuition below actual cost so that we can be as financially accessible to as many families as possible. We rely upon the generosity of the Garces family to make up the difference.
Our tuition this year is $13,950. However, the cost to educate a Garces student is $16,459, a difference of $2,509. We must cover the difference to meet our financial obligations. The Garces Fund is the best way to “bridge the gap.”
What does The Garces Fund do?
The Garces Fund helps cover the roughly $1.3 million in operating expenses that are not fully paid for through tuition revenue.
