The Acorn Fund


At all independent schools, tuition does not cover every operating expenses. This is certainly the case at St. B’s.  As a result, the school depends on the generosity of our community to help close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student.  Parent, board, faculty and staff participation directly influences the opportunities to receive grants and major gifts from donors. When foundations and donors see that our community give to The Acorn Fund, they are more apt to support St. B’s. 

Your tax-deductible gift impacts every aspect of a St. B’s education – our academic, arts, and Spanish programs; our technology offerings; our extracurricular opportunities; our campus and facilities; and professional development for our faculty.

Your gift makes a difference for Every Child Every Day.
