Capital Gifts


Capital Gifts

The Masters School continually adapts to changing needs and new technologies. Buildings require maintenance and significant upgrades from time to time. With a 97-acre campus, the needs greatly outstrip what the School can reasonably derive from tuition revenue. Therefore, we rely on the support of major donors to complete capital projects on campus. In recent years we have seen the completion of some major construction and improvement projects on campus:

  • Morris Hall for science and technology completed in 2005
  • Middle School Music Room completed in 2008
  • Faculty housing near the hill dorms completed in 2010
  • Fitness Room in Strayer Hall upgraded and enlarged in 2009 (In honor of Lynn Pilzer Sobel’71, P’99,’05)
  • Addition of a new ceramics studio in the Art Room in 2011 (Gift of Amy Peckham ’71 and John Peckham P’07,’09,’09)
  • Greene Family Field with new turf and track completed in 2011
  • Health Center improved and enlarged at McCormack Hall in 2013

As part of our facilities planning strategy, we will be constructing the Community Athletics and Arts Center as part of the current capital campaign. Following the completion of the CAAC, upcoming projects will include improvements to the Richmond Lobby and Claudia Boettcher Theatre, Strayer Hall’s music wing, resurfaced tennis courts, and important upgrades to Estherwood Mansion.


The Masters School works closely with donors to appropriately recognize their gifts. Donors interested in making gifts in honor or memory of family or others should contact a member of the Advancement Office.
