Annual Fund

CBA’s Development Office oversees fundraising, events, and community outreach. We are dedicated to supporting the school's mission by securing financial resources, nurturing lifelong relationships, and developing intentional partnerships in our community

As we prepare the next generation of critical thinkers and problem solvers, we rely on strong philanthropic support from our trustees, parents, grandparents, and friends. These gifts help shape the environment which produces outstanding students who are independent learners, thinkers and decision makers. Your investment in CBA makes a positive impact on all aspects of our school and the lives of our students.

Your gift to Clayton-Bradley Academy is tax deductible. CBA’s gift year ends June 30, but you may want to contribute by December 31 to take advantage of current year tax benefits.

Clayton-Bradley Academy produces outstanding students who are independent learners, thinkers, decision makers, and problem solvers.

We benefit from strong philanthropic support from trustees, parents, grandparents, and friends. Annual Fund gifts are targeted where they have the largest impact on the education of all our students: professional development, technology and financial assistance. Your gift allows our students to interact and learn with the best technology and enables our teachers to remain at the cutting edge of their profession.

Every Annual Fund gift is a statement of support and commitment to Clayton-Bradley Academy and the kind of education we provide to our students. Last year, we raised over $175,000 thanks to the generous donations of our trustees, parents, grandparents, and friends. We ask you to join them at any level!

If you are associated with a company that matches gifts, your gift can be increased with that match. If you have any questions or wish to give securities, please contact the Development Office.

Scholarship Fund

Clayton-Bradley is more than just an independent, educational institution – we are committed to providing the kind of quality education that prepares young people for the challenges they will face in life. In our admissions process, we are not looking for any one particular type of student; rather, we are seeking students who can bring a variety of experiences, talents and interest to our school.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to receive a world-class education regardless of economic status. However, we know that families often have difficulty financing independent education. CBA currently has a scholarship fund of over $600,000 that opens doors for a high-quality education for approximately 36% of our student body.

As enrollment increases, it is our hope to increase the scholarship fund as well. Your contribution will help support our goals of developing an inclusive and diverse student population by creating opportunities for children to attend our school regardless of their financial situation. 


“From a parent’s perspective, receiving a scholarship for my daughter was more of a blessing than I can explain. She was unhappy being in a larger school with a high student-teacher ratio, and she felt like she wasn’t learning what she needed in order to accomplish her goals for the future. There was no way I could afford to send her to Clayton-Bradley until we learned that she could apply for the scholarship program. She now loves going to school and we are so thankful to all who donate to the scholarship fund and our CBA family.”

“I have always loved science, and being able to come to a school with so many scientific opportunities has been a huge blessing. I was able to intern at UT with an environmental engineer, work hands-on in a real lab and help contribute to a scientific paper. These opportunities are so unique and my scholarship has allowed me to do it all.”
