For 100 years, The Orchard School has enjoyed a tradition of Progressive education in an environment where each family plays an active role in the school community. The Orchard community is a strong one in every respect! I am so excited we are celebrating the centennial school year and working towards our Owl Fund goal! Our community has such compassionate members that give generously through time, talent, and resources and together we continue to make Orchard an incredible place for students. 

When you give time in the classroom, volunteer for the Parents' Association, and generously support the Owl Fund, your gift helps Orchard fulfill its mission. As we continue to be in unanticipated times, children need more space than ever to explore, learn, and grow and our teachers need more resources than ever before! The vibrant life of our school is made possible by the ongoing philanthropic support and volunteerism of all our community members. Thank you! We would not be here without you. 

The Owl Fund is one of the school's most critical resources in order to continue educating students. As with all independent schools, Orchard relies on our community to give annually to help us fund projects and programs that make us the unique school we are today. 

Gifts made to the Owl Fund provide the essential unrestricted dollars needed to enhance the educational experience at Orchard and allow us to provide our students with all the unique opportunities that make Orchard so special.  A personal commitment from every family outside of tuition dollars (large or small), is incredibly impactful.

Together, these gifts provide unrestricted thinking and unlimited possibilities! 

Please consider a gift no matter the size as we strive to reach $620,000 by June 30, 2023. Because of you, our thinking is unrestricted. Orchard is free to engage with our students in passionate, creative, and experiential ways. Because of you, we have unlimited possibilities when it comes to producing leaders who create immediate and lasting values. And because of you we are unrestricted by the barriers of convention and routine. There is no limit to what Orchard can achieve. Thank you!
