Let’s keep Anacapa on the leading edge!
Our cover photo this year was taken in September at Queen’s Garden in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. A cloud had just covered the bright, midday sun for a moment of perfect lighting for our group shot with Bryce’s famous, towering hoodoo rock formations in the background.
From the International Space Station to Utah’s National Parks, we have been making connections and broadening our horizons over the past year with a fantastic collection of new and returning Anacapa students, including seven international students!
Since our last Annual Giving Campaign, Anacapa has been making headlines with new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) initiatives such as our wildly successful live, direct radio contact with the International Space Station to cap off our 2013 Synthesis Unit.
This year, two new STEM courses, Lower School Robotics and Upper School STEAM Lab, are taking shape to bring more hands-on science and technology experiences to the classroom.
Robotics fuses Legos and computers to create a friendly yet challenging engineering environment for students to jump into without hesitation. STEAM Lab adds the “A” in Arts to STEM by combining creative thinking and design with electronics and computer programming.
In addition to enhancing Anacapa School’s program, including our innovative STEM classes, Annual Giving supports our Scholarship Fund, providing tuition assistance for accomplished students who otherwise would not be able to afford Anacapa School.
Your gift helps us provide rigorous academics and a college-preparatory environment while enriching our Anacapa community with a diverse student population. We are proud to have provided the Anacapa experience to deserving students over the years and with your help we can continue this important mission.
Our goal for the 2013-2014 Annual Giving Campaign is $50,000. We’re counting on you to help support our Scholarship Fund and keep Anacapa on the leading edge! Please be as generous as you can with your donation.
Thank you very much.
