Giving to IA
Island Academy has done so much in ten short years to help hundreds of boys and girls from all over the island. The remarkable generosity of our donors has helped us to build our current facilities, provide world class teaching, and matriculate students to top-tier universities globally.
However, there is much more to be done. The school receives no funding from government in pursuit of our goals. All the resources must be raised from fee income and the generosity of those who share our mission.
Annual Assistance Programme
Each year generous gifts to the Annual Assistance Programme from friends make it possible for Island Academy to continue its educational mission. The Annual Programme directly supports the talented faculty for which the school is known by providing additional training, resources and materials.
Equally important, gifts to the Annual Assistance Programme provide an Island Academy education for many families that otherwise could not afford it. Each year, over 40% of the students receive bursaries. This important initiative allows the school to maintain its diversity and fulfill its mission of serving the best and brightest students, regardless of their financial background.
Annual Fund gifts range from $5 to $125,000 and every gift, no matter the size, is an important recognition of the importance of the school to the island.
Island Academy offers donors the opportunity to fully sponsor one worthy student for the year through its Scholarship Programme. Through the sponsor programme, donors provide tuition, books, activity and uniform fees for one student for an entire year.
This valuable programme has afforded many students the opportunities to not only learn inside the classroom, but experience all of the enrichment activities outside of the classroom that are the hallmark of Island Academy.
Island Academy seeks to secure its long-term financial future with the creation of an Endowment Fund, which will, along with its new campus, serve as the bedrock for moving the school forward. Income from the Fund will allow the school to offer financial assistance to greater numbers of bright students, and will continue to attract quality faculty and staff from all over the world.
Island Academy is an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
