About


The Augusta Prep Annual Fund drive is the school’s most important yearly fundraising initiative as it bridges the gap between tuition and the actual cost of each student’s education. The money you generously donate not only contributes to the salaries and professional development of our amazing teachers, but also the tools they need to teach our children - instructional technology, laboratory equipment, library books and even lightbulbs. 


Your gift will immediately impact your child(ren) and all Cavaliers on campus. All gifts, no matter the dollar amount, are greatly appreciated, and they are impactful in the success of our school. 


Giving Tuesday is our most important fundraising day of the year, and our annual "Battle of the Blues" competition against rival Westminster Schools of Augusta. Westminster beat us last year, so this is our year to bring home the trophy. We hope you will help us win the day!
