In 2005, The Lovett School launched a strategic planning process to refine our vision for a school defined by a commitment to learning, character, and community. The goals we set were bold, but in the years since, we’ve made great progress. We’ve grown as a community of teachers and learners, made transformative improvements to our campus, and strengthened the spirit of public purpose that makes Lovett unique among independent schools.
Throughout this period, dedicated Lovett families, alumni, foundations, and friends have donated more than $82 million to our school. As a result, we’ve invested in our faculty, built the Portman Family Middle School, created athletic fields, improved and expanded our fine arts facilities, and advanced innovative programs. Yet our work is not complete. That’s why we’re proud to announce Our Defining Decade: A Campaign for Lovett, 2005-2015.
Through Our Defining Decade, we’re investing in the people, programs, and places that make us who we are:
- We’re making our greatest investment ever in the students, teachers, and staff who live our mission every day.
- We’re creating educational and athletic facilities that work—whose true beauty and value is in their function, not just how they look.
- And we’re strengthening the financial foundation that will enable us to carry our noble mission far into the future.
Only together can we achieve this vision. Our goal is to raise $88 million by 2015—completing a decade of extraordinary progress. We’re already at 93 percent of our goal and, with the support of the entire Lovett community, we can succeed!
