Designing for Our Future
In 1923, the Burroughs campus was less than 20 acres. Today, the campus is more than 50 acres and requires constant investment to meet the needs of students and faculty. Changes to the Burroughs campus have been measured and deliberate. The recently completed improvements to facilities and green spaces demonstrate how committed the Burroughs community remains to well-reasoned change to stay current and be competitive.
All of these projects are just beginning; if one or more of these interests you, we invite you to consider making your gift a challenge gift to encourage others to also support these much-needed renovations. Eighty percent of project costs must be raised in donations before beginning any new capital improvements.
Currently, identified needs include:
- Academic Support: Improvements to the Brauer Building (our original building) will include enhancements to academic support and counseling & wellness.
- Drey Land: An additional pavilion.
- Kitchen: Gentle renovations to our iconic dining room and substantial upgrades to our kitchen to accommodate a growing student body and related food preparation.
- Soccer/Shade: Improved drainage and better shade cover for spectators.
- Tennis Courts: Ongoing improvements to our athletic facilities includes rebuilding our tennis courts with post-tension concrete and improved spectator seating.
- Baseball Field: Turf the infield and outfield of the baseball field.
“While the facilities are beautiful additions to our campus,
what happens within them is even more important —
both to our students and to our school.”
Andy Abbott, Head of School
