In 2016, The Orchard School embarked on a capital campaign to pave the way into its 100th year of Progressive education. We set forth to provide increased support for the school's facilities, people, and operations. Since that time, many generous parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends have shown support through gifts big and small.

What's been accomplished so far:

  • To date, we've raised $8.5 million of our 11 million goal.

  • Thanks to the campaign, Orchard completed and opened the Fred Lorenz Makerspace in 2020, which allows students to create and build their visions using both high and low-tech tools and experiment with a variety of materials.

  • The campaign has also funded and built three brand new natural playgrounds, which have provided much-needed outdoor exploration during COVID-19 and upgraded outdoor play and education for years to come.

What's next:

We need YOU!


Your gift of support will enhance our resources and ensure that our teachers and students are well supported, our facilities and programs are green and sustainable, and our endowment can provide critical operational support through our next century.
