Executive Summary

Keeping watch over our beautiful riverside campus, our beloved resident Osprey inspired Kent School teachers, parents, board members and students to come together to plan a $2 million campaign, Together We Soar, to bring about important and needed capital improvements designed to benefit students from Preschool through Eighth Grade and increase the school’s endowment. Today, we have raised $800,000 in new endowment funds and nearly $500,000 toward improvements to the Deborah C. Williams Middle School including an exciting new $1 million centerpiece Environmental Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics space.
Symbolizing this next chapter in the life of Kent School, a recently completed graceful new entrance portico provides safety and security for visitors, students and faculty. When the campaign is fully funded, the portico will also open its doors to new cutting-edge academic opportunities designed to prepare students for success in secondary school, college and life in our global society.
Created to guide our students to take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, solve complex problems, think critically, embrace collaboration and work through the creative process, the new Innovation Center will include the Middle School Science Lab, Middle School Math classrooms, and visual arts classrooms – including both a 2D art studio and a 3D art studio, for all students. The new Middle School Science Lab will include state-of-the-art equipment for the program designed to teach students the scientific method while focusing on core understanding of key principles in Earth Science, Life Science and Physical Science integrated with environmental science and Chesapeake Bay Studies.
Like the best schools, Kent School balances achievements and progress in ways that fully embrace our history while also exploring new opportunities in our ever-changing world. We are convinced that the power of the Kent School spirit, its community connections, and its balance of tradition and innovation will enable Kent School to soar unwaveringly into a boundless future. Please join us.
