The University Fund at Sagamore

Thanks to Indiana’s tax credit program, your gift to University High School through a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) is a win-win. It benefits the school and earns you substantial tax credits.

Why Give to the University Fund at Sagamore?

The University Fund at Sagamore makes a University High School education a reality for worthy students whose families cannot afford tuition on their own. In the past four years, contributions to the fund have provided $2.5 million in need-based scholarships for 137 students whose families would not otherwise be able to afford a University education. To qualify for these need-based scholarships, students must come from households with an annual income of 200% or less of the Federal Free and Reduced Meal Program eligibility guidelines.

Indiana’s School Scholarship Tax Credit is available to individuals or corporations who donate to University High School through a state-certified Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). Funds donated through the Sagamore Institute (an SGO) to University High School are used as scholarships to attract high-caliber students who qualify for financial assistance. Individuals who make a contribution to the University Fund at Sagamore are eligible for a tax credit as defined by federal and state tax codes. Cash or non-cash assets may be donated.

WHY UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL?

HIGH SCHOOL ONLY HAPPENS ONCE. The four years of high school are some of the most formative, impactful years of a student’s life, so it’s important to choose a school that will make these years count. University High School is a place where your child can truly thrive — academically, socially, and personally.

IT IS HEARTWARMING TO WATCH MY BOYS navigate their lives and make decisions about their futures, knowing that the confidence in their abilities and the courage to step out and embrace the world as life-long learners comes in large part from being members of the University community.

My University
Experience

At University, MY SON HAD MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPLORE HIS INTERESTS. He ran cross country, played baseball, served on the Dance Marathon committee, was a student ambassador for the St. Vincent Sports Awards, was a contestant in Mr. University, took ceramics, learned to cook, joined the Hiking Club, and traveled to Norway (in January). He loved every single experience and learned so much about himself.

University has been the best fit for our family , and I would not hesitate to recommend it. I can’t imagine a more committed, well-prepared, and dedicated group of educators. There’s big heart in this small school.

My University
Experience

I leave Back to School Night wanting to go back to high school. University allows kids to be teenagers, to be who they are and learn to accept others as they are, without needing to conform to a mold. There is not as much social drama at this school, which is nice.
