Norwood School follows a traditional U.S. independent school budget model of setting tuition at less than full cost, keeping tuition increases as modest as possible, and bridging the difference through fundraising.
Tuition income, charitable donations, income from auxiliary programs, and modest interest income make up our yearly operating budget. The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of our fundraising activities.
Annual Fund donations support all aspects of the operating budget, including the cost of attracting and retaining the best teachers, offering excellent academic programming, and equipping and maintaining our facilities — all beyond what tuition alone can provide.
Parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, teachers, and friends of Norwood support the School each year through the Annual Fund. Please help us maintain Norwood’s strong tradition of philanthropy by making an Annual Fund gift or pledge today.
