The Shady Hill Fund provides essential support for every aspect of school life — It helps us provide an innovative education for our students. It helps us support the salaries and benefits for our outstanding faculty and staff. It helps increase the socioeconomic diversity of our community by contributing to our financial aid budget. It helps us maintain our beautiful campus. All of these are expensive, but essential, elements of our school. 

The school invites gifts from parents, alumni, faculty, grandparents, and friends to balance the operating budget and close the nearly $9,000 gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each Shady Hill student. Shady Hill Fund donations to the school are vital to the continued strength of our program.
