• RippKids can go anywhere from here.


Your Impact

Because of you, we can give students the personalized experiences they need to nurture their innate curiosity, foster character development, and guide them in becoming independent global citizens who can confidently forge their own paths.

Your gift ensures that every graduate leaves here with a sense of purpose and responsibility. Their confidence and independence will give them the courage to discover their passions, express their creativity, and maintain a growth mindset.

Every dollar makes a difference.

Your gift powers the people, tools, and technology needed for students to thrive. 2023-24 tuition covers 85% of the cost to educate each child at Rippowam Cisqua School. The difference between tuition and the actual cost is called “the Gap.” When we successfully meet “the Gap” — your child directly benefits from enhanced programming that creates once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Learning goes beyond the classroom.

Starting in PreKindergarten, every experience your child has will shape how they view themselves and the world. Our faculty and staff have one goal — to ensure each child loves coming to school so they can learn, laugh, play, and feel welcomed in the RCS community. 

With your gift, you make an impact on:

  • Athletics
  • Innovating our curriculum
  • Health and wellness initiatives
  • Advancing our technology
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion work
  • Secondary school placement process
  • The Arts
  • Tuition assistance
  • Alumni networking opportunities

The door to opportunity is always open.

Providing tuition assistance to bright and curious students can enhance learning outcomes and build a strong, vibrant community. Your gift helps RCS remove financial barriers so we can enroll bright and curious students from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Thanks to your generosity:

  • RCS awarded over $3 million to 40% of students last year.
  • We can provide need-based grants to help families cover the cost of tuition.
  • We can offer a $100,000 annual grant to children of first-responders and essential healthcare workers at Northern Westchester Hospital.
