Your Gift & Its Impact

Why isn’t tuition alone sufficient to pay operating expenses? 
Gifts to Sandia Prep help provide an exceptional educational experience for every student. While tuition covers approximately 90% of the School's operating revenue, your donations help bridge the gap between tuition income and the actual cost of a Sandia Prep education.

$135 - Transportation for a geology field trip
$455 - Digital language system for our Modern Language Program
