A strong endowment is the “story behind the story” at the most successful schools and universities across the country. Schools that set the standards of quality and excellence and are able to sustain greatness over generations are, almost without exception, those with the strongest endowments.

While other schools have larger endowments, Prep has built an excellent school by making exceptionally careful use of our resources and through the generous support of the Prep Family, year after year. Just think of what Prep could accomplish if we also had a truly strong endowment.

A Stronger Endowment Will Enable Prep To:

  1. Invest in innovative program ideas, take risks and continue pursuing new ways to enhance our current educational experience for students.
  2. Attract, develop, and retain the strongest faculty in an increasingly competitive environment.
  3. Provide an accessible education by controlling tuition growth and funding greater flexible tuition opportunities for mission appropriate families in the Jackson area, including the families of our faculty and staff.
  4. Maintain and enhance our campus without relying as heavily on tuition or campaigns.
  5. Sustain a financially strong school through fluctuations in the economy and environment.
  6. Guarantee that Prep will survive and thrive for future generations of students.
Jackson Prep’s Board of Trustees, administrators, faculty, and students recognize, and deeply appreciate, the many ways that our donors contribute to the life of the school through endowed gifts. The gracious support of our friends ensures a bright and promising future for every Prep student.
