Annual Fund Support
Annual Fund Drive
The Annual Fund Drive is the largest single appeal to our entire community in support of The Highland School. The Highlands will kick-off our Annual Fund Drive in-conjunction with North Texas Giving Day on September 14, 2017 and continue through June 2018.
The Highlands School is not subsidized by any government or church organization. As with most private schools and colleges in the country, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating a student at The Highlands. We strive to keep tuition at an affordable level while continuing our mission of providing a quality Catholic education. Tuition and fees cover approximately 84% of the actual cost for each student. Charitable gifts fulfill the remaining balance, which in turn directly benefit each student by supporting and enriching all aspects of The Highlands School experience. From innovative academic programming, to meaningful spiritual formation activities, to athletics, arts and even our financial assistance program, your philanthropy is essential to advancing our mission.
Donors to the Annual Fund Drive may give a one-time donation or make monthly installments throughout the school year.
North Texas Giving Day
The Highlands School kicks-off our Annual Fund Drive September 14, 2017 on North Texas Giving Day. When you give via www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org , your support goes further with bonus funds and prizes that The Highlands is eligible to receive. This year every dollar given up to $10,000 will be multiplied with bonus funds received from The Communities Foundation of Texas when donors give online through NorthTexasGivingDay.org.
This past year, North Texas Giving Day was a huge success with over 290 donations made on this one day totaling $219,720. In addition, with 100% parent participation, we had a very generous donor who gifted the school an additional $25,000! It was an exciting day for the community. Thank you for your support!

We continue accepting gifts and pledges to the Annual Fund Drive throughout the year.
