Lesley Ellis School Auction Raises Funds for Financial Assistance
Anonymous ::: News & Events, Lesley Ellis School, Press Releases

This year, the Lesley Ellis School auction raised over $60,000 to support the financial assistance that makes the unique program at Lesley Ellis School accessible to the widest possible range of students.

Generous local businesses and school families who share the school's commitment donated dozens of special items, which were then auctioned off to the highest bidders. Unlike many schools which have support from large endowments, Lesley Ellis has limited financial aid resources so events like the auction are critical to its mission.

More than 25 percent of Lesley Ellis students currently receive some financial assistance. The school also strives to keep tuition affordable.
