Q. Why does Ascension Academy ask for gifts in addition to tuition?
A. Tuition at Ascension, like all private schools, does not entirely cover the cost of each student’s education. The Annual Fund gifts, special events and individual gifts from major donors make up 40 percent of Ascension’s budget, while tuition covers 60 percent.
We understand that not every family can participate financially in every giving opportunity available. At a minimum, we do ask each and every family to carefully consider a gift to the Annual Fund. Even small contributions can go a long way in helping to cover the many needs of our school. Giving is a very personal event and we accept all contributions graciously and encourage you to contact us if you wish to designate a gift to a specific program.
