The Benchmark Fund
The Benchmark Fund is the financial heartbeat of the school, providing support for every student and faculty member every day.
Benchmark School's tuition is a significant investment. We manage our budget carefully and take pride in being good stewards of our community's investment in our success. And yet, for the financial health of our school and the strength of a truly outstanding program, we cannot rely on tuition dollars alone.
It ensures the success of new initiatives, and eases demand on the yearly budget, enabling flexible planning, professional development, cutting-edge technology, top-notch facilities, and much more.
