Why do we need to have an O'Hara Fund? Isn’t tuition enough?
Most private non-profit schools charge less in tuition than the actual cost of running the school with the anticipation that fundraising will bridge the gap. At O'Hara, tuition covers only about 85% of our costs. The actual cost of educating each student is thousands of dollars more than the tuition charged. O'Hara provides our students with an outstanding education while at the same time keeping tuition considerably lower than area private schools.
The O'Hara Fund provides additional dollars to our operational budget that enriches and enhances our program beyond what is possible by tuition dollars alone. We invite and encourage each member of our community (parents, board members, staff/faculty, alumni, grandparents, friends, businesses, etc.) to generously support the O'Hara Fund.
