Endowment gifts create a permanent source of funding for faculty compensation, scholarships and financial aid, programmatic enhancements, and more, ensuring that USM is able to provide a world-class education for generations to come.
What drives USM’s legacy and reputation? The incredible faculty who educate our children and, most importantly, the quality and preparedness of the students we graduate. We are committed to attracting and retaining the best possible teachers to mentor and inspire our students.
At USM, excellence and achievement are non-negotiable. This is why USM is always turning the page on our future—updating and enhancing our curriculum and pedagogy and defining best practices for 21st-century teaching and learning.
Endowment growth helps USM maintain its leading edge as a nationally ranked independent school. We are not just a thought leader—we put innovation into practice every day with all teachers across the entire School.
We understand the financial commitment that families make by providing their children with a USM education, and we are dedicated to keeping that experience accessible to as many families as possible.
USM is committed to moderate tuition increases and maintaining a healthy financial aid program, both of which help keep our School affordable and accessible.
Today, more than 20 percent of our students receive financial aid, and our school community is better for it—with students from diverse backgrounds and life experiences.
We also provide major scholarship opportunities to outstanding candidates. When we invest in promising students, we invest in the continued vitality of USM.
