Giving at Apple Orchard School benefits The Lee Albright Scholarship Fund and The Apple Orchard Teacher’s Fund. We are grateful and appreciative of your gift.

AO Scholarship Fair

The Lee Albright Scholarship Fund

Apple Orchard is committed to creating a diverse community of families, students, and faculty. We strive to ensure that everyone at Apple Orchard feels a sense of connection and belonging. Each year, Apple Orchard School provides scholarship support to approximately 20% of its students.


The Scholarship Fair is our primary means of raising these funds and providing support for children who would not otherwise be able to attend. The success of these events is important to the school community and to many families who, because of these gifts, will be able to attend Apple Orchard.


Your creativity, generosity, and positive energy are integral to making scholarships possible.

The Teacher's Fund

Apple Orchard School provides a supportive and stimulating environment for teachers and children to thrive. Funds raised for the Teacher's Fund help our school attract and retain excellent, talented teachers, and provide benefits beyond what is possible on a regular basis. Teachers are able to attend workshops, seminars, and courses as well as continue their education and explore new areas of learning and expertise.

Our Scholarship Fair is a wonderful chance for current families, alumni, and new families entering the school to come together, enjoy time connecting, and have fun while supporting a very special cause.

The Teacher's Fund

Apple Orchard Teacher's Fund

The Teacher’s Fund has allowed for incredible training experiences for our faculty and shifting our teaching lens to that of an Anti-Bias Anti-Racist (ABAR) curriculum. Our faculty has worked with Britt Hawthorne on our awareness of how young children learn about stereotypes and prejudice. Britt is the author of the 2022 book Raising Antiracist Children.

Participating in workshops with Britt throughout the year, we have become better able to address tough questions around white privilege, access and equality and how to focus not on the difference, but the uniqueness of each of us and what we bring to our community. Britt brings possibility, hope, and joy to wherever a teacher is in their understanding about what young children know and learn at this stage about inequality. Through our work with her and others we are a school community committed to ensuring children leave our school respecting and embracing who they are in the world.
