Why do we have school fundraisers?
Mount Royal Academy is a privately funded institution, and because of that, fundraising is needed for our school to exist. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating our children. Fundraising strengthens our school community, provides our children with many opportunities and helps keep tuition affordable.
What is the family fundraising commitment?
Each family at Mount Royal Academy is required to raise $650 per year or opt out with direct payment. Families that raise more than their commitment will receive 20% of the surplus total towards next year’s tuition.
Why ask for participation from families?
The economic climate of the early 21st century has not been friendly to non-profit organizations. More and more private educational institutions—especially Catholic schools—are closing their doors because of the difficult challenge of achieving financial stability. We are blessed that Mount Royal Academy continues to thrive and grow! An integral part of educating children is securing the financial support needed in order to adequately teach the whole person. Because Mount Royal is a lay founded and governed school, all members of the community—board members, faculty, staff, parents, and students—must invest themselves in the successful continuation of the school's mission.
