The Centennial Campaign for our Students and Teachers


The Centennial Campaign for our Students and Teachers, the most ambitious fundraising campaign in the school’s history, is underway! The goal is to raise $25 million by June 2013, capping Park’s centennial year celebrations. This endowment campaign will support Financial Assistance, Faculty Salaries, and Professional Development. As the public phase of the effort begins, organizers have secured cash gifts, pledges, and planned gifts totaling just over $19 million to date.

By focusing this Centennial Campaign on Park’s endowment, we’ve chosen to honor the most precious assets of our past, present and future: our students and teachers. We look forward to engaging thousands of Park supporters and building an endowment that will have a powerful impact on our community throughout the school’s second century.

“At this moment in Park’s history, as we approach our second century, we know what matters most and that’s investing in great teachers and great kids,” said Dan Paradis, Head of School, “…and that’s exactly what this campaign is all about.”
