Please Give to BOTH the Annual Fund & the Capital Campaign Christ Episcopal School as we know it today is the beneficiary of the many families who have so generously supported its mission through the years. Each year, we ask all families to contribute to the Annual Fund for a very good reason. There is a real need for these funds. Without them, we would not be able to meet the many demands on our operating budget. For instance, the Annual Fund allows us to hire additional faculty so that our class sizes remain small.
We are asking all Christ Episcopal School families to participate in BOTH the 2012-13 Annual Fund and the Capital Campaign to fund the school’s Christwood Boulevard campus expansion. Your family’s support is critical to our success!
Support the Annual Fund Christ Episcopal School counts on unrestricted gifts raised through the Annual Fund to supplement tuition revenues in order to support all aspects of our operating budget. Annual Fund gifts are invested in: • Cutting edge technology • Facility maintenance • Program enhancements • Faculty salaries and professional development • Athletic programs

Since 2002, our student enrollment has increased by 41%. Total enrollment is expected to approach 600 students by 2016.

The Center of Inquiry will serve ALL of our students in ALL grades. The $4.5 million building is part of a master plan that will: • Provide a marquis centerpiece for the entire school • Ensure an appropriate physical plant to accommodate 6 multifunctional classrooms • Create a flexible, state of the art theatre for school assembly, music and worship • Establish a modern digital library with both traditional and advanced electronic offerings
Capital Campaign pledges may be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually over a three-year period, or in a single payment.
We need $7.0 million for the first phase of our campus expansion: (1) the construction of the 16,000 square foot Center of Inquiry and (2) the CES Track and Athletic Field.
The CES Track and Athletic Field will be a state-of-the-art modern facility designed to meet Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) standards and will cost approximately $2.5 million. This advanced design field will offer students and the school a competitive and versatile venue for hosting local and regional games and events. Our fundraising goal is to raise $3.5 million, which combined with the $1.8 million already pledged will enable us to realize our vision.
