Little Earth School is one of the most innovative independent schools in New Mexico. We take great pride in educating the whole child. Providing Little Earth students with the necessary and important academic and social/emotional scaffolding required to become successful students and human beings is front and center in our approach to education.
Like many other private independent schools in America, tuition alone does not provide all the requirements needed to successfully educate our children or operate our school. The tuition at Little Earth School covers 76% of our operating budget. The remaining 23% balance rests on the shoulders of those who contribute to our Annual Giving Campaign and other fundraising events.
Our Annual Giving Campaign offers members of the Little Earth community with the opportunity to support the school through a 100% tax-deductible contribution to Little Earth School. We rely on the generosity and kindness of our families and friends to build a diverse and inclusive school, and help support our student programs in science and outdoor education, art and music, technology, language and global festivals, physical education, and the continuing education efforts for our teachers. The fundraising campaign also provides resources for our financial aid program.
