A Gift of Security
The COVID-19 pandemic has seriously hurt the economy, and many families who have children at ACS will struggle with paying the full tuition.
In 2019-20, 237 students have received tuition reduction and we granted 1,494,010 leva in financial aid. We are expecting the number of financial aid applications for the next school year to increase compared to last year.
This is the time to come together and help those members of our community. We are in this together. Please give to the financial aid pool and build a broader safety net for those among us who are hit the hardest by the economic downturn.
To help those families in need, we are directing all our fundraising towards financial aid. Please give any amount you feel comfortable with. Due to social distancing rules, ACS lost fundraising opportunities like Arts Fest and revenue sources like the spring school. Our fundraising must find additional 65,000 leva by August 31 in order to reach last year’s levels. Together, we can make a gift of security to ACS families.

ACS changed my life by opening doors that my parents would have thought out of reach for us. It did so because of the vision and generosity of those donors that made it possible for bright kids from all over the country to get a shot at attending a top private school regardless of the financial circumstances of their families.
