How St. Christopher’s funds its operating budget
A significant portion of the St. Christopher’s operating budget is allocated to the salaries and benefits necessary to both attract and retain our highly talented faculty and staff. The second largest cost incurred is to operate and maintain the Schools’ 43 + acre campus and its facilities. These two expenses represent over 75% of the School’s operating budget.
While tuition supports the majority of the operating budget, St. Christopher’s funds the balance of its operating budget with support from the School’s endowment and Annual Giving. As St. Christopher’s strives to limit tuition increases, the importance of Annual Giving and endowment grows significantly. Every gift to the School makes a direct impact on the affordability of a St. Christopher’s education for all boys.
