A Community of Giving

In 2010, a group of dedicated parents, faculty, and administrators founded Alta Vista School. By working together to maximize resources and their talent, Alta Vista has grown and in 2018, graduated its first class.


Today, Alta Vista’s students thrive as creative thinkers, innovators, and catalysts for positive change in the world at our two campuses. Our community continues to come together each year to generously support and grow the unique learning environment that makes our school special.


Charitable contributions from parents, friends, and staff allow Alta Vista to continue to grow and provide the very best programs

for our children. When you make a contribution of any size to AVS, you are joining a community of parents and friends who help ensure that we can provide each child with an extraordinary educational experience.

Capital Campaign

A Capital Campaign is a springboard to Increase the impact Alta Vista School has on its students and community. (Unlike the Annual Fund, these campaigns are launched only when there are capital projects and can encompass several years.)


Capital projects address the fact that exceptional teaching must take place with excellent tools, including classrooms that accommodate the latest technology and space to climb, play, learn, and gather. These projects are the foundation for a sustainable future.
