Students are at the forefront of everything we do and they will benefit from the largest campaign in our school's history, which ended June 30, 2020. The Forefront Campaign included capital projects that created innovative learning spaces, annual giving that supports people and programs, and endowment to ensure long-term financial health and leadership.

The Forefront Campaign is the largest in the school's history:

Happy students

We are proud that the progressive ideas and groundbreaking programs that have made our school a national leader have grown out of our mission, shared values, and our commitment to the needs of our students.

The core tenets of the Forefront Campaign strike at the heart of our unique spirit, energy, and values:

  • Preparing students to lead and thrive in a changing world
  • Inspiring a love of learning through exceptional faculty and staff
  • Instilling personal integrity and well-being
  • Creating a distinctive and sustainable learning environment
