*As with most independent schools, tuition and fees do not cover the full expense of educating each child, therefore the fulfillment of Rio Grande School’s mission is dependent upon voluntary charitable giving. The financial support that RGS receives each year from parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, foundations, and businesses makes it possible for the school to challenge each child’s intellect, inspire each child’s imagination, and nurture each child’s desire to learn.


We are deeply grateful to the generations of parents who have invested in Rio Grande School to create this thriving and vibrant educational experience for hundreds of children. We invite you to join with others and express your generosity through this tradition of giving.
