100 years of Intellect. Integrity. Spirit.
The largest fundraising campaign in our history, the Centennial Campaign honors Garrison Forest’s first 100 years and prepares the School for its second century. The success of the Centennial Campaign will ensure that generations to come will enjoy the transforming privilege of a Garrison Forest education.
Centennial Campaign achieves $25 million goal!
- Create a national-level endowment: While we have made great strides, our endowment continues to lag behind many of our peer schools with whom we compete for students and faculty. A strengthened endowment will allow us to remain competitive in recruiting and retaining talented faculty, provide increased financial aid to maintain an inclusive student body, and ensure that we have innovative programs to inspire our students to lead confident, productive lives.
- Restore our most historic buildings: Garrison Forest’s 110-acre campus has numerous, treasured architectural landmarks. As part of the Centennial Campaign, the Centennial Courtyard, Manor House, Robinswood, Senior House, and Lochinvar have undergone major renovations.
- Improve academic and athletic facilities:
- Construct a new Middle School and expand and refurbish the Upper School: We have constructed a new, “green” Middle School, which opened in the fall of 2007. Designed in the historic architectural vernacular of the campus and built using sustainable construction practices, the new Middle School received Silver LEED certification. We added 12,000 square feet to the Upper School by expanding classroom and office space beyond Marshall-Offutt into the F.E. White building, the former home of the Middle School.
- Add two turf fields: The School added two turf fields to our outstanding athletic facilities, which include the Searle Athletic Center and Hopkins Fields.
