It Takes a Village...

Seabury’s rich educational program is made possible, in part, through the generous donations of those who support Seabury’s mission and vision. Seabury supporters, including parents, extended family, alumni, and community members, generously give of their time, talents and resources to ensure Seabury has the resources to “ …challenge gifted students in a community that cherishes each individual and fosters a love of learning, discovery and creativity.” Parents chaperone on field trips, including the multi-day excursions the Explorers and middle school students have been on this month. Parents and community members share resources. This week, we had firefighters, police officers, local religious leaders and others spend time with Seabury students to enhance their learning. Parents, through PBC, provide enhancements to classrooms, and provide opportunities for parents to get together for fun, family activities.  The activities and experiences that are made possible through the time and expertise shared by parents and community members have been life-changing for Seabury's children.

Tuition helps provide the small classes, highly trained teachers, and the unique experiences Seabury's students benefit from. But to supplement tuition, and to support enhancements to programs, Seabury relies on two major fundraising efforts each year, the annual fund and the auction, to provide exceptional education for students and to expand Seabury's program

You will soon be hearing about the first of Seabury’s two major annual fundraising initiatives. The annual fund will launch this month, and you will have the opportunity to participate in supporting Seabury’s students through your donations. In addition, Seabury is entering the second year of a three year Program Enhancement Campaign, which is raising funds to support the start up of the middle school program, fund facilities enhancements at the lower school, and has already provided for the lower school arts program. More information about how you can participate will be coming soon.

Seabury’s parents and friends understand more than anyone the value of the Seabury experience. Seabury’s faculty and staff appreciate the generosity of our parents in giving their time and resources to support our work on behalf of your children.  Thank you!
