Make a Gift

Windward, like most independent schools, relies upon charitable gifts beyond tuition income to support school programs. The special attributes that set Windward apart—small classes, innovative teaching, a diverse student body, well-maintained facilities, and dynamic offerings beyond core classes—are expensive. Rather than increasing tuition to support them, we solicit tax-deductible donations through various initiatives that help the school and allow families to give based on their ability.
