Annual Fund/Giving Culture 

As an independent School, Salisbury Academy relies on tuition and fees to financially support the costs of our exemplary learning environment. Tuition and fees at Salisbury Academy account for approximately 80% of our annual operating budget. The remaining 20% is funded by generous support from corporate and individual friends of Salisbury Academy. Please reach out to Director of Annual Giving Tracey Baird at tbaird@salisburyacademy.org for more information. 

The Annual Fund 

The mark of any great independent school is a strong Annual Fund, both in dollars raised and in parent participation. Unrestricted, tax-deductible gifts to the Annual Fund help the school meet its budgetary goals and empower Salisbury Academy’s students and faculty. We ask every family to support the Annual Fund each year with a tax-deductible gift. Learn more about the SA Annual Fund.

Core Knowledge

Salisbury Academy is part of a growing network of schools across the country that uses the Core Knowledge Sequence and is finding great success as measured both by standardized tests and by the students’ enjoyment of learning.The Core Knowledge Sequence is a planned progression of specific content that builds upon itself year after year while enhancing students’ critical and higher-order thinking skills. In each grade, students explore a broad range of historical, scientific, and cultural topics. This wide array of subject matter not only develops a deep understanding of science, social studies, and the arts but also establishes the strong vocabulary necessary for true reading comprehension and prepares students for later educational success.
