Annual Fund



 Meet Jack '18.

When Jack first arrived at Sandia Prep, he was hesitant to take Mandarin, but he was intrigued with the idea of learning a language using an iPad.  Tracing characters and practicing intonation proved to be a perfect fit for the 12-year-old Sundevil. As Jack explored the East Asian language through social interactions and teacher guidance, he knew he wanted to continue with a second year of Mandarin.

Throughout the year, Jack took advantage of the Sandia Prep experience.  In science, he learned how to use a microscope.  During activity periods, he played tennis, basketball and baseball.

Someday, Jack may work in global finance or maybe he'll pursue his dream of playing  major league baseball.

The future goes to Sandia Prep.  One student at a time.

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is Sandia Prep's annual giving campaign organized to inspire charitable giving from our parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends for the general operating budget. Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of educating a student at Sandia Prep. In fact, it only covers about 90%, with the remainder coming primarily from the Annual Fund and other revenue.

Why give?

A gift to the Annual Fund is the single most important gift you can make to Sandia Prep each year. When you join our community in charitable giving, your financial support ensures that Sandia Prep is able to: • Offer students an academic curriculum sure to prepare them for the future; • Equip classrooms with technology that facilitates learning; • Support faculty in their ability to remain at the cutting edge of their academic disciplines; • Provide arts programs that inspire and foster creativity and personal expression; and • Maintain athletic programs designed to instill the spirit of teamwork and competition.
