Why Give

A tradition of support from alumni, parents, and friends helps ensure that students continue their growth into positions of community leadership. If you ask, "Why should I give?", the reasons are many:

  1. Attract Top Educators

    A great school is built one superb teacher at a time. Gifts to the school enable us to continue improving our compensation program, and attract and retain proven, outstanding educators.

  2. Attract Eager Students from Diverse Backgrounds

    We aim to pair excellent teachers with bright students in the community. Need-blind admission is a critical goal for us, and we need your support to achieve it.

  3. Enduring Legacy of Local Excellence

    Your gift ensures that we can continue developing a high quality independent school that will serve current and future generations in Northwest Washington.

A gift to the Annual Fund is an investment in 310 students!

The Annual Fund

Your gift to the Annual Fund makes an immediate impact on our school.  As St. Paul's students move beyond our halls, they take the skills, talents, and abilities garnered here and make positive contribution wherever their paths lead.  

We count on St. Paul's parents, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends to invest in our students through the Annual Fund.

Tuition at St. Paul’s covers approximately 62% of the total cost of educating a student: the balance is made up through contributions from donors like you.


St. Paul's Academy relies heavily on the time and energy of its many generous volunteers. The school is fortunate that parents and students alike consider volunteering an important part of the St. Paul's experience. Volunteers help lower our operational costs and help keep tuition affordable.

The main avenue for volunteering is through the parents' group called PALS (Parents Actively Lending Support). Please see the calendar for a list of upcoming volunteer activities and events.

The annual Auction also needs volunteers October through January to assist with that event.

Annual Auction


The Grand Cru Auction & Soiree will take place on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at the Hotel Bellwether.  This is an exciting event with dinner, games of chance, silent and live auctions!  Last year's event was a huge success and we look forward to seeing you again!


The majority of the proceeds will fund the school's general operating budget. This will ensure that SPA can continue to offer superior programs and quality education to each of its students at an affordable cost.

Proceeds from the Dessert Dash will help fund international travel adventures this Spring.

We would like to sincerely thank our generous sponsors, auction guests, donors and volunteers who all make this event possible.
