Investing in What Matters Most
The UCHS Annual Fund provides critical annual operating support that allows us to go beyond what tuition affords and further invest in programs and priorities that create an exceptional educational experience. Every part of our campus is strengthened through gifts to the Annual Fund while ensuring that the UCHS experience is distinctive and accessible to all.
Your philanthropic support helps us to cover the $918 per student difference between the actual cost of a UCHS education and what is covered by tuition.
Annual giving dollars allow UCHS to solidify the strength of our programs, the excellence of our faculty, the diversity of our community, and the ongoing development of our campus and facilities. It also serves as an expression of thanks and confidence in our faculty and staff for all that they do for each student. Your participation is more meaningful than the amount of the gift. It is a vote of confidence for our school, our mission and our leadership.
Your gift will make a difference. We are grateful for your support!
UCHS is a family.
Beginning in 2009 with our founders and 8 students, donations from parents, grandparents, alumni and friends have donated over $3,050,000 to build the school we know today.
UCHS Families have invested significantly in their student's education. Your generosity will keep UCHS vibrant for our students as well as future Barracudas for many years to come.
Give with a Purpose!
Every part of our campus is strengthened through gifts to the Annual Fund. Each gift is tax deductible and every dollar supports student success. This year we are further investing in 3 top priorities: Campus Security, Technology and Transportation.
Looking at our facilities through the eyes of a safety and security expert, Mr. Barrett has determined several windows and doors in North and South Campus need to be retrofitted for safety. Additionally, he is investigating the best “Campus Alert” cell phone system necessary to reach all students, teachers, staff, and parents within moments of a safety incident. These systems are utilized by all colleges and universities, and is a feature which would be an added layer of safety for our students as they move about campus. This requires an initial contract fee, as well as an annual fee to operate.
Technology…Ever Changing…Ever Necessary! In addition to hardware, we continue to purchase specialty software which requires annual maintenance fees per student, in order to operate. You might not be able to touch it, but your student sure appreciates the difference it makes in their day-to-day. In many cases, some software eliminates the need for a physical text book - saving the trees, as well as your student’s posture!
We have one large bus that hasn’t moved in months, and will not move without a new transmission. UCHS administration would like to repair it, sell it, and invest in two or three passenger vans over the next few years. This allows flexibility in shuttling students to events, as well as ease of use for the driver since no special driving permits are necessary.
