The school sponsors semi-annual fundraisers each year. Money raised from these drives is used to support academic costs and services to the entire student population. Participation in the drive is mandatory for ALL students. Every student is expected to support the drives and to reach her personal/family quota. This amount is publicized to the student body at the beginning of the school year. A fee each semester is accepted in lieu of the quota. No additional fundraising projects are required by the student. The family rate is usually 1.5 times the amount of an individual student’s quota.
