Pursue Your Passions

PGPhoto Dear Friends of Branson,
Branson thrives because of the relationship that exists among the faculty and staff, students, current and past families, alumni, trustees, and friends. Generations of people connected to Branson have contributed to the School with a generosity of spirit that inspires and humbles us. Every year, we ask our community to support Branson philanthropically, and every year our community responds.  Simply put, Branson would not be the exceptional school that it is without the culture of philanthropy that so many have worked so hard to build over the years.
We are a small school that runs programs that are more than comparable to those of our larger peer schools. Though other schools have more tuition revenue, we offer academic, artistic, and athletic programs that are truly second to none.  In order to do so, we rely on that culture of philanthropy to sustain us. Your giving allows us to attract and retain the best and brightest educators nationally and internationally, and every gift touches every member of our community in countless ways. Because of you, our benefactors, we can educate, challenge, nurture, and inspire every single one of our students. A gift today makes a lasting impact.
If you are interested in learning more about our giving programs, or if you just want to come back to campus for a visit, please feel free to contact me or anyone else in the office.

Phil Gutierrez
Assistant Head of School for Advancement
