Leaves on the Giving Tree

In 2021-22, Clapham School is trusting the Lord for big things! 

Annual Fund: $150,000 goal

The Annual Fund enables many local families to gain access to classical education by helping us provide financial aid and cover our operational costs.

Building Fund: $500,000 goal

Our new facility is a gracious gift from the Lord. He has provided $1.5M already! Please help us finish the job so our building will be complete and ready to serve as a platform to launch tomorrow's Christian leaders into the world.

As donations are received, leaves will be added to the Giving Tree in our Welcome Center.  Help us bring life, abundance, and fruitfulness to our school. Use the drop down menu on the next page to select the fund to which you want to give.

Clapham Facility-Bryan Litfin-Origin Story

An Exciting Future

Founding Family member and Head of Strategy & Advancement, Dr. Bryan Litfin, recalls Clapham's early days and rejoices in the new opportunities that lie ahead.

Rooted in Living Waters

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose trust is the LORD.

He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit."

-- Jeremiah 17:7-8
