As with other independent schools in the United States, Ecole Jean-Jacques Rousseau operates without additional financial support from local, state, or national governments. Tuition is the “price tag” for an independent school education, but it is not the true cost. Just like the cost of a ticket to a museum does not pay for the art in the museum, tuition does not cover how much it costs to run a school. This is why independent schools require philanthropic investments to fund their educational programming. In order for our school to continue providing great programs in an enhanced learning environment, and because tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of each student’s education, we seek support current and past families, faculty, staff, alumni and friends. The Annual Fund truly makes the difference between a good education and an excellent education.
