The Annual Fund is an essential component of Caldwell Academy’s operating budget. It is an opportunity for our parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and friends to invest in the future of the school. The Annual Fund is the school’s primary fundraising initiative that is necessary for bridging the financial gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Caldwell education. The Annual Fund supports the school’s daily operational needs, faculty professional development, athletic and fine arts programs and tuition assistance. By supporting the Annual Fund, your tax deductible gift will help keep Caldwell’s tuition levels down.
Why does your participation in the Annual Fund matter?
Your participation is vital in demonstrating to the community that our families support the mission and educational excellence of Caldwell Academy. The participation numbers are just as important as our monetary goal for the Annual Fund. It is important to show outside corporations and foundations that our families are committed. As a result, those entities are more inclined to support and give back to Caldwell. Caldwell Academy’s 2015-2016 Annual Fund campaign will start on October 26. Your gift can make a difference as no gift is too small.

Why do we give to the Annual Fund?
“We transferred our children to Caldwell from another private school 5 years ago. We knew coming into Caldwell that we would get the classical Christian-centered education that we desired. And Caldwell has delivered – over and over again! Caldwell’s Annual Fund ensures that Caldwell stays competitive with technology, staff, and tuition rates. We support the Annual Fund each year because we feel strongly that it is important to show our support for Caldwell. We are confident that our gifts help Caldwell continue to provide the very best education while it consistently keeps its tuition affordable enough for all to attend.”
Jay and Andrea Jung, parents of River ‘18, Clyde ‘20 and Jessie ‘22
“Caldwell joins with us to teach our children about the true word of God and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Beginning in kindergarten, children at Caldwell memorize scripture so that His words are hidden in their hearts for a lifetime! The teachers at Caldwell pray with and for our children daily and encourage Godly character traits as they make choices. We could not ask for a better environment for our children to learn and grow. We are so thankful for the education they are receiving at Caldwell Academy.”
Leslie and Rich Ramos, parents of John ‘23 and Noah ‘23
“We are so grateful to be able to send our children to Caldwell Academy! Being surrounded by loving people who teach our children in a Christ like way is truly a gift. We value the classical education model and Christian worldview that our children are greeted with each day. The annual fund is as much a part of our investment in the education of our children as is tuition. We contribute to the annual fund for three simple reasons: (1) to help provide necessary classroom items that are not covered by the very reasonable tuition compared to other private schools, (2) to assist other families that may have fallen on hard times and (3) to “pay it forward” to a Caldwell community that will live far beyond our time so that others may enjoy the wonders of education in Christ.”
Kim and Mike Lapeirre, parents of Matthew ‘24, Sarah ‘25 and Anna ‘28
“There are a lot of reasons we love Caldwell. We love that our kids are getting nourished spiritually as well as intellectually every day. We love that they are not just acquiring information, but are learning to draw their own conclusions from it and explain their reasoning convincingly. We love that Caldwell’s teachers, administration, coaches, and other staff truly care about them, guide them kindly when they stumble, and rejoice when they succeed. We feel that Caldwell is helping us prepare our kids to go out into the world not merely as good students, but as good people who will do great things!”
Jeff and Margie Jenkins, parents of Amanda ‘17 and Matthew ‘19
“We are pleased with and thankful for the well-rounded education that Caldwell offers. With one child entering middle school this year, we are glimpsing and understanding better the layers of classical education. We are grateful for the school’s high standards and the ways in which students are taught personal responsibility. We support the Annual Fund because we recognize that there are legitimate needs not covered by the base tuition. We contribute to help build up Caldwell’s educational resources and our children’s classrooms.”
Leslie and Rick Morgan, parents of Ellie ‘21 and Abby ‘24
