Support Prep

Endowment

The College Preparatory School's endowment provides long-term support for the school’s operating budget, ensuring that future generations of students benefit from the excellent education the school offers.
Endowed funds are professionally invested and managed for growth. Up to five percent of the income produced by these funds provides annual support for faculty, financial aid, programs, and our campus. We are grateful to all who support the Endowment and ensure that College Prep remains robust and relevant.
