Garden School students are encouraged to think and learn independently and take initiative, thus allowing them to experience the rewards of inquiry and reflection. We can deliver this excellence because our students and teachers are provided with the best educational resources available.
Garden continues to flourish due to the generous efforts of many people. For generations, alumni, parents, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends have supported Garden School through their philanthropic contributions and volunteerism. We are indebted to our many donors and volunteers who support our school each year.
Your gift matters because it supports our faculty, students, and academic, arts, and athletic programs that prepare Garden students to become tomorrow’s leaders. A gift of any size has immediate impact on the teaching and learning at our school.
We invite your participation in the many volunteer and philanthropic opportunities, which make a difference in the life of every Garden student.
