Annual Fund

Support Today's Students and Faculty

Each year thousands of alumni, parents and friends come together to support Worcester Academy’s Annual Fund. Why? Because they recognize that every Worcester Academy student - past, present and future - has benefited and will benefit from the generosity of those who have come before them. 

As a non-profit organization, Worcester Academy's financial model depends on philanthropy. The Annual Fund provides support for the school's current-year operating expenses. Annual gifts make up the difference between what tuition covers and the actual cost of running the Academy. Specifically, the funds help WA to:
  • Maintain small classes
  • Provide professional development and competitive salaries for faculty
  • Fund enrichment programs, especially in computers, the arts and athletics
  • Keep our facilities and grounds looking beautiful
“Worcester Academy was like a partner with us in getting our kids through adolescence. We give because we are grateful.”
- Dr. Mary Maloney and Dr. John Ferriss P ’02, ’04, ‘06
