Why Give to September School?

As an independent school, September School operates without financial support from local, state and federal governments. 

Our unique relationship-based education approach means that we maintain very low student: teacher and student: counselor ratios. And, unlike traditional schools, our curriculum takes our students outside the classroom walls and into the world. Our budget is shaped by these needs.

Many families new to private schools are surprised to learn that tuition doesn’t cover the full cost of private school education. At September School, only 80-90% of our budget is covered by tuition and fees. We make up the difference with grants and through our fundraising programs, including:

  • Annual Fund
  • Community Circle
  • Capital Campaigns

ANNUAL FUND

The Annual Fund provides unrestricted funds to our school and runs from July 1 to June 30 every year. Our goal is that 100% of September School families pledge to the Annual Fund, in a way and at a level that works for them:

Monthly subscription (recommended monthly amount: $40)

Annual contribution (recommended annual amount: $500)

Your gift of any amount supports the people and programs that make our community so special. When we work together, it all adds up. 

COMMUNITY CIRCLE

Through our Community Circle, you work with us in a more powerful way to build financial sustainability and our continued growth. Community Circle donors pledge to support September School with gifts of $5,000 or more.

Friend ($5000-$9999)

Partner ($10,000 or more)

In recognition of your generosity, Community Circle members receive:

Inclusion of your name on the school’s website and in all appropriate fundraising materials

Mention of your name at key school events, including graduation

Invitation to special Community Circle events

For donations of more than $25,000, you may designate a place on our campus to put your name.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGNS

In 2019, we celebrated our 45th year with the completion of Phase 1 of our new campus at 96 Arapahoe in Boulder, CO. Nestled at the mouth of Boulder Canyon, our historically landmarked campus provides extraordinary access to the outdoors, including Boulder Creek and many local trails, as well as to the extended classroom in Boulder and the surrounding area. 

The complete buildout of our new campus will allow us to offer world-class education to our students and expand our enrollment to 80 students. 

Phase 2: renovate the historic barn (next to our primary building) and address interim facilities needs

Phase 3:  Build a new community space 

Your gifts to our Capital Campaign will help us continue this important and timely work.
