  • Support the school philosophy and rules.

We are currently seeking donors to provide scholarships for our families that struggle to pay the $360 annual tuition.

Only $30 a month will give a child a chance of a lifetime.  Call Lynn Curless, Development Director, at 203-575-0659 ext. 212 for more information.

Thank you, on behalf of the entire student body.

You can donate by credit card or Paypal with this link. You can even establish monthly contributions!

(Your receipt will LOOK as though it's coming from Paypal even though the donation is made through a credit card. Not to worry. Paypal is simply processing your credit card transaction.) 

Thank you for your support!
