Welcome and thank you for your interest in The Carry The Torch Capital Campaign. In the pages that follow, we are excited to share more detailed information about The Carry The Torch Capital Campaign!

Based on a comprehensive needs assessment by noted architectural firm Gensler, a Master Plan has been developed to address critical campus and facilities issues. The planned improvements will be carried out in two major phases.

In October 2013, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved proceeding with Phase I of the Master Plan currently expected to cost approximately $18 million.  The Carry The Torch Capital Campaign seeks to fund Phase I of the Master Plan, thereby transforming our campus with a new Lower School and Early Childhood building, new Dining Hall and expanded green space.
