Support Our School

The wealth of knowledge and experience Out-of-Door provides our students is the result of the generous support of our community. These gifts make a difference in the lives of every student at ODA and help us maintain our status as one of the finest independent schools in the area.
Thank you for your interest in learning how you can support The Out-of-Door Academy. Our school's fiscal vitality is a result of those who have offered support throughout the school’s storied history through the Annual Fund, the Banyan Ball/Bash, Capital Giving, Corporate Partners, and volunteerism. These individuals and organizations have helped us establish a culture of philanthropy and volunteerism.

Our mission can only be accomplished with assistance from every member of the Out-of-Door family—from trustees and faculty to parents, grandparents, and alumni. Independent schools rely on strong charitable giving programs to thrive.

The federal government encourages philanthropy by allowing charitable gifts to be deducted from taxable income, and Out-of-Door's non-profit status enables supporters to take advantage of these tax benefits.

We encourage you to get involved in the life of the school with your time, talent, and treasure. For more information, please contact the Advancement Office.
We are proud of our graduating seniors, 100% of whom were accepted to four-year colleges and universities around the country and world. Eighty-eight percent received unsolicited merit/academic scholarships totalling over $9.3 million in scholarship dollars. Seventy-two percent of the class is matriculating out of state.
