As in most independent schools in the US, tuition dollars pay for the basic costs of operating our school – such as staff salaries, books and supplies, building maintenance, and general operating expenses. However, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a world-class education.
Through the contributions of families like yours, you can help support and grow our school to become a prestigious independent school of the Austin area. Together, we will achieve this goal!
Every gift counts and your gift, at a level where you feel comfortable, will make the difference!
The Annual Fund
As an independent school, Ecole Jean-Jacques Rousseau relies on fundraising to bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the cost of educating a child at EJJR. We are proud to say that our participation rate in the Annual Campaign is increasing every year.
What does your Annual Fund donation help us do?
- Provide financial aid so that families from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances can come to Ecole Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Everyone benefits when our school community is diverse.
- Maintain competitive tuition. The cost value Ecole Jean-Jacques Rousseau education sets us apart. In some cases, our tuition is half that of other prominent independent schools in the Austin
- Ensure small class sizes. Dual language and differentiated learning are at the core of our program. Both require small teacher-to-student ratios to be effective.
- Strengthen our instructional foundation. We need to provide faculty with the best teaching tools and continuing education opportunities to grow in their profession.
- Nurture the growth of our fine arts program and athletics so we can continue to inspire creativity and promote healthy lifestyles among our students.
- Offer enriching travelling through our abroad summer camp programs to allow our students to experience other communities and the world through firsthand, immersive opportunities, and at a very young age.
- Provide learning enhancements and essentials. Everything we put in the classroom gives our students an extra edge
