ACS encourages support for its on-going programs nurturing student excellence and for new strategic projects to advance the school. Unlike tuition and Annual Fund gifts that support operating expenses, the school's endowment and endowed funds generate a perpetual stream of revenue that helps ensure ACS's long term financial security by providing funds for tuition aid, faculty salaries, and program initiatives.
Please check our current list of Endowed Funds below. If you would like more information or want to discuss ways to give endowment funds, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Established by the Harcourt Family for a senior student who has demonstrated distinction in academic and athletic areas.

Established by Kenneth D. Wantling (ACS '56) and Virginia Moore Wantling (ACS '56) in honor of four outstanding teachers Phyllis Albright, Albert Koundakjian, Frederick Royal, and George I. Za'rour. Income from the fund is to provide scholarship assistance to High School students demonstrating high academic achievement.
Established in March 2009 and is awarded to a High School student boy or girl who has earned the distinction not necessarily because of objectives accomplished but rather because of a deep curiosity and an interest in learning that might not always be conventional. The Constan Scholar will be a High School student prepared to demonstrate a compelling definition of success.
A permanently endowed fund established by the Prosser Family to award the Walter Prosser Graduation Prize to a senior student who has demonstrated academic distinction and commitment to the ACS Community Service Program. The remaining funds provide for financial aid to be applied by the school as needed.
