From its inception in 1995, Lowcountry Preparatory School has been supported by families, alumni, and the community, as is the case among independent schools across the nation. We rely on this support in order to provide the level of educational opportunities to our students at the affordable tuition rates we have been able to maintain over the years.
Each fall, Lowcountry Preparatory School kicks off our Annual Fund Campaign with GoodEATS, a celebratory dinner that launches the annual fund season. With our Annual Fund campaign, we strive for 100 percent participation from our families. While it is not the amount that is given that is important, it is the fact that each family participates that makes the difference. By showing that we have 100 percent participation, we are showing that we are a community united in a common purpose: to provide an exceptional education for our children.
The Annual Fund Campaign is crucial to Lowcountry Preparatory School’s operating budget. Each year, the Board of Trustees strives to balance a budget while keeping tuition rates well below the national average. The difference between our tuition rates and the actual cost of educating a child results in a gap in our budget. The Annual Fund Campaign closes this gap and allows Lowcountry Preparatory School to continue to offer a quality education to our children at an affordable cost.
In addition, throughout the year, Lowcountry Preparatory School applies for various grants and awards to improve our school. From awards to expand our science facilities to grants to improve our language programs, these awards are based upon lengthy applications which receive extensive review by distinguished members of committees. These committees look to see what kind of commitment our school has from our families. A 100 percent participation in our Annual Fund Campaign shows these committees that our families are committed and joined as a community.
