Please see attached for more information about the Family Fundraising and Give and Get obligations.

The $1800 (or $900) Family Fundraising obligation can be met in the following ways:

If a family raises more than the required amount, the additional amount may be credited towards next year’s obligation, or 25% of the additional amount may be credited towards the family’s tuition payment. A family may not carry over more than $5,000 from one fiscal year to the next fiscal year. In addition, a family may not take a credit towards tuition of more than $250 per child in any fiscal year.


The $700 Give and Get obligation can be met in the following ways:
