Annual Fund Campaign

This year our Annual Fund Campaign is built around the Vision of faculty and staff with wish list items that they have identified to help take student experience and our programs to a new level.  Our operating budget was intentionally planned to help us achieve a number of goals including but not limited to - closing the gap in Teacher salaries, outfitting our new Black Box Theatre with custom acoustic curtains, lighting, sound and a custom riser system, providing instructional supplies for our arts and academic programs and providing professional development for our staff/faculty.
