Dear Friends,

The practice of learning by doing has made The Soulard School who we are today. Now in our 10th year, we are very excited to share this milestone with you! Enrollment grows, we have earned accreditation through MNSAA, and new benefactors and partnerships are expanding our impact throughout St. Louis. This progress has validated our model and strengthened our courageous spirit.

We are here as a profound example of what is possible in education today, but we cannot do it without you. One of the most important ways you can help our students learn is by doing something, too. We ask you to consider making a tax-deductible financial contribution to our 2015-2016 Annual Fund. Here is why:

Your gift helps bridge the difference between tuition and the total cost of providing the type of experiential learning that inspires our students. Our unique Equitable Tuition Program fosters a balanced socioeconomic student body; and ensures all our families can educate their children as equal members of a diverse community. Soulard School families pay an average of $4,000 per year, while it costs $9,000 per year to educate each child. Over 60% of our students rely on your generous support to attend The Soulard School.

Although we measure the Annual Fund drive in percentages and dollars, the true measure of success is the impact this fund has on our kids. Your generosity is all for them. Thank you.

Sarah Christman
Executive Director, Co-Founder
