The New Horizon Annual Fund

As with all independent schools, an annual fund campaign is a vital component of the operational budget and is necessary to maintain high quality programs. The New Horizon Fund is an annual campaign targeted to make up the gap between tuition/fees income and educational cost per student for this year. Please consider a tax-deductible pledge of this educational cost gap or more per child.
