Cumberland Academy of Georgia is a private, non-profit, independent school geared towards helping every student become successful and independent adults. As an independent school, Cumberland depends on tuition and charitable contributions to cover the annual operating expenses of the school. Tuition covers 76% of the specialized education here at Cumberland. To best support our students, our Annual Fund helps Cumberland’s specialized program to include small classroom size, certified special education teachers, social skills development, life skills development, and interactive science programs. We depend on contributions to help support our school operations. In addition, charitable contributions can support financial aid, capital projects, and special projects to help Cumberland continue to be an exceptional school. The many ways to give to the Annual Fund are outlined below and should be received by July 30, 2021. We are grateful for your support!
