Your Support Matters

Your support makes Seven Hills School possible.

When you give to Seven Hills, you are investing in the innovative people, programs, and places that make Seven Hills THE middle school for boys in Richmond. Your contribution makes it possible for our students to ask questions, tell stories, solve problems, make art, conduct experiments, build connections, test limits, try new things, have fun, grow, mature. When you give to Seven Hills, you are investing in the success and achievement of our students and teachers, today, and for the rest of their lives.

Everything we do at Seven Hills is intentional. We keep our community and classes small to allow for individual attention and close connections. But being a small school yields a limited amount of tuition income, which covers only a portion of the cost of a 7HS education. To keep tuition affordable, to hire and retain great teachers, maintain our historic campus, and recruit a talented and diverse student body, we rely on the contributions of generous donors like you. You make Seven Hills possible.

The Annual Fund

Money raised through our Annual Fund helps defray operating expenses and supports the people and programs that make Seven Hills School unique and important to the boys who come here.

The school’s approach to learning has unique costs as well, so each year we turn to parents, grandparents, past parents, alumni, staff, Board members and friends for financial support. And every year these groups and others support Seven Hills out of gratitude for the opportunities the school has provided, and as an investment in the school’s future.

Annual Fund gifts are used to meet the school’s most pressing needs, such as:

  • covering the difference between tuition income and the cost of educating our students
  • providing tuition assistance and scholarship aid to students
  • supporting our faculty development and other growth programs
  • providing much-needed funding for our expanding operating budget
