We are thrilled to announce that this year’s proceeds will go to support Beyond School. Beyond School is a one-of-a-kind program. St. James' is the only independent school in southern California that provides a tuition-inclusive enrichment program. As you may know, over 170 of our students take classes through Beyond School, ranging from podcasting to Latin to ISEE prep -- all of it as part of the St. James' base tuition!
Beyond School is not funded through the budget -- it is made possible through the school's philanthropy efforts, particularly the annual gala. Last year, the gala provided almost $140,000 in funding to support Beyond School, enough to fund the program for a full year. We look forward to continued success with this year's event.
