Nueva Fund

Each year, all families are asked to show their support by making a donation to the Nueva Fund. Last year we reached 99% family participation, and this year we are aiming for 100%.

The Nueva School is a leading independent school for high-ability learners. In order to develop and deliver this nationally recognized education to our students, Nueva relies heavily on charitable support.* Annual giving is a line item in Nueva’s annual operating budget, and every dollar raised directly supports the exceptional people and programs that make Nueva so special. 

Philanthropy Enables Nueva to...

  • Attract and retain the best faculty members
  • Invest in professional development for faculty
  • Maintain small class sizes
  • Offer financial assistance where necessary
  • Purchase the technology, library materials, and scientific equipment that are necessary to deliver our advanced curriculum
  • Fund signature programs in art, drama, and music; and support co-curricular programs such as athletics and field trips
  • And much, much more!

*According to National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) statistics, tuition and other operating funds cover an average of 80% of independent schools’ operations. The remainder is supplied through the personal philanthropy of parent communities and other constituencies such as parents of alumni, alumni, grandparents of current students, faculty, and friends.
