Both campuses of Runnels School will be CLOSED tomorrow, April 18 due to forecasts of enhanced risks of severe weather in the Baton Rouge area. All activities and field trips scheduled for tomorrow have been postponed. With safety as our primary concern, we are closing out of an abundance of caution. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support of this decision.

Giving Overview

The Annual Giving Campaign is at the heart of our school’s fundraising efforts. As with most independent schools, tuition does not cover the entire cost of educating a Runnels student. The Annual Giving Campaign helps fill the gap between the tuition and the actual cost of providing the high quality education that students receive at Runnels.     

Runnels Annual Giving Campaign donations touch every student, every program and almost every area of our school life. Your gift to our Annual Giving Campaign enhances our students’ educational experience, allowing Runnels to add innovative programs and technology while honoring our traditions and commitment to the individual student. 

Since Runnels is an independent private school, it receives no funds from religious institutions. We receive less than 5% of our income from state or federal organizations. The rest comes from tuition and gifts.

At Runnels, we count on fundraising to supplement tuition and fees. Your donation to the Annual Giving Campaign will help provide that margin of excellence that has come to characterize a Runnels education.
