About the Campaign

Make It Enduring

A Hub of Inspired Collaboration and Learning

Make It Meaningful: The Athenian Campaign includes three facility improvements that together will create a campus hub that inspires student collaboration and innovation.

To build these buildings and the ideas and projects that will live within them, we are embarking on a $12 million campaign that encourages connection, kindles the imagination, and ignites transformational teaching and learning. A school-wide philanthropic effort to raise funds to support Athenian’s vision and priorities, this 4-year, $12 million campaign officially began on July 1, 2014, and was publicly launched on October 6, 2017.
Our campaign is called Make it Meaningful because Athenians have a long history of making their learning meaningful, making their Athenian experience meaningful, and making their lives meaningful. Not only are we building structures, we are making manifest a vision whose meaning will be amplified with the support of our community. We hope you will join us with a meaningful contribution of your own to make Athenian meaningful for generations to come.
The scale of our ambition is monumental, yet when our community comes together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.
Just as having high school students build a plane seemed like a far-fetched dream and we are now building our 3rd, we know that your support will help us set the foundation for students to continue to dream, create, and make meaningful contributions of their own.
