The difference between a good education and an exceptional education is your unwavering support and involvement.
Thank you for considering to invest in the success of our Independence students!
I have been a member of the Independence family for more than five years, first as the spouse of a faculty member, then as a parent of two lower school boys. Most recently, I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve as the school’s Director of Development and work alongside our dedicated Development Coordinator, Marci Sieja, whose roots with Independence tie back to its founding as a member of the first graduating class in 1979.
I can truly say that this is an amazing place! My children have been nurtured, challenged, comforted and encouraged from the moment they walked through the doors. They are growing into intellectually curious, confident, kind and respectful young boys as a direct result of the educational experience that Independence provides.
Our faculty members truly care about the success of each and every student, and they strive to continue to advance and refine their teaching content and methods so that they inspire their students to be independent, entrepreneurial thinkers. Not only have our children flourished at Independence, but my husband and I have also become better parents through the wisdom and guidance of the faculty and school leadership.
My family and I are truly grateful for everything The Independence School has given us over the last five years. We have been inspired to give both time and money to the school, as we recognize that the exceptional educational experience that we all know and love at Independence requires more than simply paying tuition; it also requires the support and engagement of the entire school community.
I know that many of you reading this letter feel similarly grateful for being part of the Independence community. I hope you will join me and my family in investing in the success of Independence by making a gift today.
