Shamrock Shakedown

🍀We are excited to announce that the SHAMROCK SHAKEDOWN VIRTUAL AUCTION is making an appearance this year! 🙌🏼 

While some aspects of the Shamrock Shakedown may look different without an in-person St. Patrick's Day celebration, we are LUCKY to have the opportunity to support the students & staff at Beaufort Academy by raising funds through sponsorships and a 10 day virtual silent auction with over 100 amazing items and deals debuting on March 17, 2021.
The Shamrock Shakedown has been one of the most successful and notable fundraisers for Beaufort Academy, where 100% of proceeds support BA's most immediate and recurring needs: operating budgets, teacher salaries, financial assistance, technology, classroom supplies, amongst other very important items that contribute to the BA experience.

The Beaufort Academy campus is committed to in-person learning as it is necessary to stimulate a child academically, socially and emotionally. With the addition of outdoor tented lunch areas, picnic tables with plexiglass dividers, Z-shields provided to all students and staff, added hand sanitizer stations in each classroom, cameras and microphones outfitted in each classroom, necessary PPE equipment and sanitation, BA was able to be the first school in Beaufort County to return to school in-person for the 2020-2021 school year. Because of generous donors and sponsors like you, Beaufort Academy was able to accomplish the above providing a safe campus and effective education for our students to return to.

COVID-19 has unveiled the importance of a family’s ability to choose how and where their child succeeds academically. This year alone, we were happy to welcome over 120 new students who chose to be a part of the Beaufort Academy family. Because of funds raised for financial assistance, more families were able to choose AND afford an independent school education their child deserved. We thank YOU for your continued support!

Please see the attached donor or sponsorship options that will MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

We hope you join our mission this year allowing Beaufort Academy to provide our students the best opportunity to learn, grow, and excel. Thank you for your continued support of Beaufort Academy.
