Give to Highland


"I give because it enables Highland to offer unique curricula other schools have cut, or never had. My son spoke in front of 200 people AND reporters at age 7. It was nothing new to him - he'd been speaking at assemblies and in plays since Pre-Kindergarten!" HIGHLAND PARENT

There are many ways you can support Highland School. Since the School's founding in 1928, active participation by our families has been instrumental in fostering our school's tradition of excellence. 
Throughout our history, parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and friends have given generously of their time and financial resources to support operational needs, capital improvements, and our endowment. Please consider supporting Highland in any of the following areas.

Give to The Highland Fund

The mainstay of Highland School's fundraising is the annual Highland Fund. Contributions to this fund are raised and spent during the current fiscal year to offset operating costs. The Leadership Donor Reception is held each fall to honor those donors who have contributed $1,000 or more in combined annual giving to Highland School. Click here to give online now.

Attend our Special Events

The two largest fundraising events of the year are the Auction and the Golf Tournament. Both events are primarily organized by parents. Funds raised from these events are used to offset the operating budget and programs that directly impact our students and faculty. You can read more about our special events here. For more information, contact Briar Leake.

Make a Planned Gift

Planned gifts provide an opportunity for donors to support Highland School through deferred giving. Those who create bequests or other planned giving, including through insurance policies, are honored in our Legacy Society. For more information, contact our Development team.


There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities at Highland School. Find out how you can get involved by talking to your Parents Association grade representative. Learn more about how to volunteer or become involved with our Parents Association.
