Our Annual Fund

Every day, your gift makes a difference in the lives of Sandia Prep students, enriching every aspect of campus life, including academics, arts, athletics, activities, and our school atmosphere. 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. Thank you for considering a tax-deductible gift to Sandia Prep.
Your participation matters. Give now.
