Our Campaign...

At its September 2018 meeting, the Board of Trustees of Buckley Country Day School gave the green light to move forward with a
$5 million capital campaign. The overall goals of the campaign are to continue to support program enrichment, meet the needs of our growing enrollment, increase security, and build a strong financial safety net to ensure the school’s future. 
 
Specifically, this campaign—Our School, Our Future—will:
 
Build six new, state-of-the-art classrooms to support
our music and language programs
 
The new classrooms will be home to all of our language classes as well as Lower School music classes, chorus, band, piano ensemble, strings, and percussion, including instrument storage. The clustering of music and language classrooms will also foster greater opportunities for teachers to collaborate. This construction project reaffirms our commitment to the performing arts and language instruction.
 
Provide a new dining hall and gathering space
for students, faculty, and parents
 
This project will accomodate two family-style lunch periods for all students, including Pre-K and Kindergarten, open up Grace Commons as a community space, and allow for a greater variety of lunch options. The expanded dining hall will create a designated space for community gatherings and provide convenient access to our auditorium and Upper School wing. 
 
Expand parking availability and Enhance Campus Safety
 
The new parking lot will expand the number of available spots to nearly 300. This will re-direct traffic, making it safer for children and adults, as well as increasing control of visitor access to our campus. The parking lot will provide space to relocate maintenance facilities away from the center of campus and give us the opportunity to enhance its overall appeal. 
 
Grow our endowment
 
Building a substantial financial reserve for Buckley will ensure that our school continues to provide high-quality programs and retain the best faculty in the future.
 
Construction of the Our School, Our Future projects is scheduled to start in June 2019. Similar to many other undertakings, from the very founding of our school to the building of the facilities we all enjoy today, Buckley cannot fund these projects with operating revenues. Funding for projects such as these is made possible by the generous financial contributions of all constituent groups to Buckley’s capital campaigns. 
 
We are all, without exception, the beneficiaries of the generosity of past generations of Buckley parents, grandparents, and alumni. It is now our turn to leave a strong school to the students who will graduate in its second centennial.
