Families of Rindge Avenue Upper Campus, Inc. (FRAUC) is a nonprofit organization founded by families of students at Rindge Avenue Upper Campus. Our mission is to support and enhance the educational experiences of RAUC students by providing an organization through which families, school and teachers can work cooperatively and by providing financial support for student programs funded outside the annual school budget.


  • Leads fundraising events ( Election Day Bake Sales)
  • Provides grants to faculty for field trips, after school clubs and events and student activities. This school year we have funded the Raspberry Pi club and Chill Snowboard Club.

  • Purchases materials and resources that enhance the curriculum. In the past we have provided pizza for NetPals and science poster boards for the Science Fair.
  • Provides funds for guest speakers, such as Marika McCoola, the New York Times-bestselling author of Baba Yaga’s Assistant.  She spoke and ran a writing workshop with all 6th grade classes.

  • Encourage community building such as the “Ask a 6th Grader” current 5th graders get to ask their 6th grade peers about their experience at the Upper School.  It is followed by an Ice Cream Social.
