To say this fall term has been unique is an understatement but even a pandemic won’t deter us from our mission to educate students to be exceptional learners and independent thinkers of vision, courage and integrity. Over the last 25 years, the PNA annual fund campaign has made up the difference between the income provided by tuition and the actual cost of operating the school, including classroom resources and teaching tools, educational technology, equipment, and continuing education for staff.
We need your help this year more than ever. No matter the donation amount, every dollar we raise is appreciated and meaningful. The annual fund campaign is so important to PNA that a generous donor has agreed to double the impact by matching your contribution! If that isn’t enough, here are three great reasons for you to make a difference at PNA.
25 years of graduating engineers, financiers, doctors, teachers, scientists, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, Peace Corp volunteers, writers, cinematographers!
Small class sizes allow teachers to provide individualized instruction that challenges students. They also create a learning environment where students feel supported, accepted, and safe.
The Annual Fund makes it possible for PNA to provide a curriculum that encourages independent thinking and a global perspective. Dedicated teachers challenge students to find their passion through project-based learning and student driven intellectual inquiry.
Help us continue igniting the spark in future leaders by donating before the year’s end and your gift will be MATCHED dollar for dollar up to $125,000!
Thank you for your generous support!
