Top of the Hill Challenge

As part of the annual appeal Schlarman alumni are asked to give to the Top of the Hill Challenge to support their class year in the annual “friendly” competition between our alums. The forms for the Top of the Hill Challenge are available on the main Support SA page.

January 28, 2018

Happy New Year!  We hope this finds you and your families well.  As you all know, Schlarman Academy’s continued success is made possible by the unwavering support of alumni and friends.  The Top of the Hill Challenge is a way to support your class year in an annual “friendly” competition between our alums.  Whose class will be on Top of the Hill?  Will it be yours? 

Your donation will help things on our wish list become a reality.  Our goal is to raise $28,000 through the Top of the Hill Challenge!  Here are a few projects that may be possible with your generous donations:

  • Bathroom renovations at the North and South campuses
  • An awning on the mansion side of the North Campus that may provide energy savings, weather protection (sun, rain, snow, sleet, hail, wind), advertising, and aesthetics
  • Stage curtains at the North and South campuses

Making your donation is easy!  You may charge your gift by telephone by calling (217) 442-2725. Visit – go to “Support SA” – go to “Top of the Hill.”  You’ll find the Top of the Hill pledge form for your convenience there.  If you work for a company that matches gifts, please enclose the matching gift form with your check.  Please make checks payable to Schlarman Academy.  Remember, all gifts are tax deductible.

Are you on Facebook?  If so, go to our page, Schlarman Academy and “Like” us!  Visit our Facebook page to see the Top of the Hill Challenge scorecard for updates and under “Support SA.”  The class who wins the challenge will have a plaque hanging in the Halls of Schlarman.  

Thank you for your continued support!
