Did you know that tuition and fees monies go towards salaries? That means that EVERYTHING ELSE is funded through donations. The Annual Fund pays for basic needs – heat, lights, internet, insurance, copier, telephone, etc. – so that does not leave much leftover for “extras.” Your purchase of or donation of money towards any of these would make a BIG difference for our students and teachers. Our shipping address is North Branch School, 221 Mickens Road, Afton, VA 22920.
When ordering items from Amazon, please consider using the Amazon link on our home page or going through your Amazon Smile account, listing North Branch School as your charity. Thank you!
