Springdale Preparatory School, the area’s newest and most unique independent school program, will welcome business leaders, political leaders, community members and prospective and current families to celebrate and raise funds at its inaugural gala, Reach for the Stars, on Friday, May 4, 2018 at the Seibel Farm in New Windsor.


Proceeds from the gala will benefit the Springdale Preparatory Supporting Potential Scholars Fund (SPSF) in partnership with the Carroll Community Foundation. The scholars fund helps avail students to incredible growth opportunities, enables SPS to maintain a socioeconomically diverse student population which benefits the school culture, and supports off-campus learning experiences while

connecting students to global peers and instructors. In its first year, Springdale Preparatory School has provided $190,650 in financial aid to Carroll County families, with an average award of $12,363.


“Similar to our nation’s independent school community, most students who attend Springdale receive significant financial aid. As a result, these students will bring their talents and resources back to our home community in future decades as professionals and innovators making a significant impact in their careers,” says Johnny Graham, founding head of school. “Gifts to our Supporting Potential Scholars Fund will impact the quality of life in Carroll County for many years!”


The Reach for the Stars Gala will include an international menu prepared by the distinguished Springdale Preparatory School culinary staff, with traditional fare representing Africa, Asia and America, as well as beer, wine and soft drinks. The evening’s festivities will include a silent auction, an exciting program and the acoustic and vocal sound of local favorite Phil Kominiski. Upwards of 150 guests are expected in attendance primarily from the Maryland and Washington, D.C. areas.


Sponsorship opportunities are available for the Reach for the Stars Gala, from $250 - $1,000, and include program book advertising and gala tickets. Individual tickets are on sale for $100.
