The Shady Hill Fund provides essential support for every aspect of school life — It helps us to provide an innovative education for our students. It helps to support the salaries and benefits for our outstanding faculty and staff. It helps to increase the socioeconomic diversity of our community by contributing to our financial aid budget. It helps us to maintain our beautiful campus. All of these are expensive, but essential, elements of our school. The Shady Hill Fund helps to alleviate the school's dependence on tuition, thereby benefitting every family at the school. Each year, members of the community are asked to make gifts to Shady Hill Fund to support the day-to-day operations of the school.

The school needs gifts from parents, alumni, faculty, grandparents, and friends to balance the operating budget and close the nearly $6,700 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.

If you would like to make a gift to the Shady Hill Fund, please contact Judy Beecher, Advancement Officer, at 617-520-5238 or, or click here: Give Online.
