The makerspace will mark a return to the work of beloved legendary shop teacher, Fred Lorenz, who helped to empower generations of Orchard students by giving them the tools and support to design and build their visions.
By investing in our teachers through this permanently endowed fund, we will ensure that Orchard remains competitive in recruiting the very best talent while providing continued-education and leadership opportunities.
This fund will offer families an Orchard education by breaking down the financial barriers. The investment income generated from gifts to this fund will allow the school to be responsive to the needs of today and tomorrow.
"Nature as Teacher" is one of The Orchard School's most treasured guiding principles. To ensure that all aspects of all our school reflect this foundational value, Orchard is in need of capital support for a sustainable campus.
