J.A/Bayview Trust: Annual Giving Campaign
In September 2008, Junior Academy began operating classes in its newly constructed premises located at 2454 Bayview Avenue. The driving force behind this massive undertaking was two-fold:
1) Junior Academy needed well equipped premises in order to continue providing its students with a superior quality of education
2) to ensure the school’s ability to accommodate its growing middle school population.
In order to achieve these goals, Junior Academy has established a Charitable Trust ( J.A/ Bayview Trust) to help raise the funds essential for the many resource materials needed for the effective implementation of both its current & future programs relating to things such as Arts, Technology and Athletics.
Junior Academy provides a unique learning environment in which each student’s learning rate and style are recognized. A highly trained and experienced staff, including several resource teachers, provides individual programming, both to enrich and to remediate students.
While Tuition fees are intended to cover the school’s operating costs on an annual basis. Junior Academy, like most private schools, still require the support of current & past parents, alumni, as well as, the community, to provide the additional support necessary to enhance and enrich the core academics of the curriculum.
Annual Giving essentially makes up the difference between tuition revenues that maintain the “real” cost of operating and advancing the school. Like most private schools aiming for 100% participation in their “annual giving” campaigns; these donations demonstrate the confidence of the current & future students in the school and further more encourages the participation of other donors from outside the school community.
