OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL ADVANCEMENT

Welcome to the Office of Institutional Advancement’s home on the Web. Our goal is to strengthen and advance the mission of Professional Children’s School, primarily through raising philanthropic support for the school (a.k.a. “fundraising”).

As a private, not-for-profit school, tuition pays the majority of the cost of a PCS education, but it doesn’t pay the full cost. The need for financial aid continues to increase. In a given year, as many as 42% of PCS students receive need-based financial aid, enabling them to attend PCS.

We work with parents, grandparents, trustees, alumni, parents and grandparents of alumni, and others in the PCS community to raise the remaining costs to make a PCS education possible for more students. Thank you for your generous support of PCS.

Sincerely,

Chris Haley, Director of Institutional Advancement
