Family Commitment Guide


Gordon has a longstanding commitment to building a family-school partnership that enriches our students’ experience and strengthens our community. As the school invests in each child’s academic experience, we ask that families in turn strengthen their relationship with the Gordon community by contributing through:
• volunteering their time, and;
• supporting Gordon’s fundraising efforts.

This new guide advances our goal to foster transparent dialogue around giving and volunteering. Taking such a straightforward approach is also consistent with Gordon’s move to a simpler, more predictable tuition model in 2018-2019.

To learn more, please reach out to the Development Office or Gordon Community Association.

We look forward to a great year with you at Gordon!

A community commitment

Tuition alone does not cover all of Gordon’s annual operating budget.

Gordon relies on our community’s generous philanthropic support to fund today’s programs and fuel Gordon’s future. This model is similar to those at other independent schools. You can learn more about some of our key Development initiatives online, including:
