The Campaign for
The Frederick Gunn School


The Campaign for the Frederick Gunn School is an extraordinary $100 million campaign to support innovation in our academic programs, provide access for talented students, improve faculty compensation and professional development, reimagine our facilities and enhance our financial sustainability as outlined in the school’s Strategic Plan. To achieve the vision of our Strategic Plan, we will invest thoughtfully in our people, programs, and places. It is time to be bold. We invite you to join us.


Attract, retain, and support talented, hard-working, creative, and and hopeful faculty and students guided by our Core Values.


Reimagine our campus so that our learning ecosystem champions the interconnected nature of life and learning.


Elevate our Keystone Programs and design innovative and relevant new programs rooted in Mr. Gunn's values.
