Annual Scholarship Gala

Each spring, 400 parents and supporters come together for an unparalleled evening of fun and fundraising for our scholarship fund. Our gala is as dynamic as our community and provides attendees and partners the ability to celebrate while supporting a worthwhile cause. Guests participate in raffles and auctions, bidding on dining, travel, classes, personal pampering, and more. A monumental 100% of Gala proceeds go directly to scholarships for more than 20% of our families.  The Co-op School’s mission is to nurture self-directed learning, make it joyful, and encourage self-reflection and engagement in creating an equitable world. The gala’s proceeds further this mission by making our school accessible to more families.

This year’s gala will take place on:

DJ, Open Bar, Food, Auction and Loads of FUN! It’s been a year, let’s bring the community back together!
