A fiscally sound, non-profit school, ASM operates on a balanced budget philosophy. Operating costs are covered mainly by tuition and fees, and the school does not depend on gifts for any portion of its day-to-day expenses. Tuition alone, however, cannot provide for all of the extras, and ASM must therefore rely on the generosity of parents and friends. ASM, like most independent schools, chooses to seek philanthropic support to further enhance its educational programs. Fund-raising efforts help to provide the extras which ensure that our students are offered an outstanding and unique education, and that our school is a step ahead of the rest.
Through ongoing friend-raising and fund-raising efforts, ASM has been fortunate to receive the loyal support of corporations, foundations, and ASM families and friends. Such community relationships are essential to maintaining the educational excellence for which the school is known.
Community awareness and involvement is a key part of the ASM Building for the Future campaign. As educators, we feel it is essential that our community is an active partner in shaping and preparing our school for the future. We want the community to share our enthusiasm and excitement.
Redesigning Collaboration, the current Building for the Future Campaign, is about creating open, flexible, connected, and interactive spaces. Your donation and more importantly your participation will support the development of an exciting learning component. Please join us in reshaping ASM for learning and for the future.

We thank our donors, past, present, and future, for their generosity and courageous support of our students’ future.
Over the years, the drive for continuous improvement has made ASM a dynamic and constantly developing school. The essence of ASM’s mission is to prepare students for their futures. While their future holds unimagined challenges and opportunities we know the powerful combination of independent initiative and collaborative effort within a community that values the strength in diversity will prepare them not only to thrive but to take an active and positive role in framing issues and crafting solutions for the future.
ASM has dedicated the resources and funds to build state of the art facilities for music, art, sport, technology, and science to support student learning and enhance both the depth and breadth of the ASM experience for all students. The current project continues this dedication to developing and improving our school.
It is with great excitement and pride that we present the next phase in the ASM Building for the Future Campaign; a new Learning Commons that will radically rethink and reshape the heart of the Upper and Middle School programs and community. This project is more than an upgrade or refurbishment of existing facilities. It will create a modern learning environment that will foster collaborative and independent learning; redesigning the way we connect, interact, and learn with one another. ASM’s new Learning Commons will provide our students with opportunities to work and learn actively, both “hands-on” and “minds-on”. The Learning Commons will be connected to two newly renovated spaces, the Library and the Cafeteria, establishing a continuum of learning environments for both formal, academic research and inquiry as well as for flexible and open areas where the ASM community can connect and collaborate informally.
Learning Commons, Library and Cafeteria Project:
ASM recognizes that it cannot stand still. ASM is committed to not only maintaining its record of educational excellence but extending both program and facilities to ensure that ASM is recognized as a leader among the American-international schools in the world.
ASM is a fiscally sound, non-profit school that operates on a balanced budget philosophy. Operating costs are covered mainly by tuition and fees, and the school does not depend on gifts for any portion of its day-to-day expenses.
For large scale capital projects ASM, like most independent schools, chooses to seek philanthropic support to complement capital funds. These allow us to develop and enhance our educational programs. This is a common practice among top private schools in the United States and international schools around the world. Fundraising efforts enrich the school’s program and facilities and ensure that our students are offered an outstanding education in a unique setting.
Through ongoing friend-raising and fundraising efforts, ASM has been fortunate to receive the loyal support of its community. Such relationships are an important component in maintaining the educational excellence for which the school is known.
No. All the costs deriving from the Building for the Future project will be financed from the school’s capital reserves, capital income, and generous voluntary donations, not from the operating budget (which is funded by tuition fees).
Gifts of all sizes will help ASM reach its goal of providing an excellent educational setting for its present and future students. Your gift – whether large or small – is important to ASM and the students it serves. Gifts are significant not by their amount but for what they stand for. Each contribution is a statement of support and solidarity, an indication of our shared values and aspirations.
The names of all donors will be recognized and published on the campaign summary, unless the donor prefers to remain anonymous. If this is the case, please specify it when making a donation.
