We are thrilled to share that groundbreaking will begin by early December for our new classroom building and Commons.
Our current timeline projects that the construction of all three of our new buildings will be completed by the beginning fo the 2018-19 school year. We are confident that our building projects will enrich every student’s experience, serve Athenians of tomorrow, and better align our learning spaces with our mission.
We appreciate the generosity of those who have already contributed leadership gifts for these new spaces. It takes a committed and generous community to support two philanthropic efforts at once: The Annual Fund (i.e. a gift to our operating budget that supports our current-year programs and priorities) and the Campaign (i.e. a philanthropic investment in Athenian’s future). Given the strength of our Annual Fund, our current maximum enrollment, and our remarkable Fund-A-Need efforts in recent years, we are confident that this community will rise to the challenge. Many families have already participated, and we will be reaching out to every family in the coming year to invite people into our philanthropic efforts. If you are interested in learning more now, please let us know.
As we enter into our third capital campaign in the School’s 50 years, we are reminded of all the people who have given to the School for today's students, and we are excited to allow our current community to have their turn at supporting the next generation. I am grateful for your patience and support as our community enters into this exciting period of change and renewal.
To learn more about the construction and the progress of the campaign, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly.
