The Annual Fund provides critical funding that bridges the gap each year between tuition and the actual cost of educating a Carroll student.
Annual Fund gifts make a difference every day in our 3:1 student-to-teacher ratio, innovative cognitive intervention programs, and data-driven teaching methods. Gifts help our teachers find the unique learning path for each student in order to provide what she or he most needs to succeed academically and socially.
Thank you in advance for joining with us as we advocate for our motivated students who not only see the world differently but also have incredible gifts to offer the world.
