Capital Campaign

 
YOU DID IT! 

Your gifts and pledges to date have allowed The Howard School community to claim the $1.65 million Challenge Grant and reach $14.3 million towards the Opening Doors Capital Campaign!!

Thank you to each and every member of our community! Together, parents, grandparents, alumni and alumni families, foundations, trustees, and community friends supported this historic campaign at unprecedented levels! Because of you, more students will be able to receive a Howard School education today and for many years to come.  

Please mark your calendars for the morning of February 20th to celebrate Howard's campus expansion. Enjoy guided tours of the Young High School building, breakfast in the newly named Marifred Cilella Student Center, and a walk within our new campus quad spaces. We cannot wait to celebrate with you! 

Thanks to your generosity, and as part of our campaign promise, our exceptional campus will be even more accessible as we OPEN THE BACK GATE this semester!! We will be working with the City of Atlanta to ensure that all safety measures (and street signs) are in place for the opening of this additional access point on to Howard's campus. Additional safety officers will be working on campus and implementing a plan that optimizes the way we use the campus road and vehicle movement through carpool. Be on the lookout for new carpool and student parking information in the coming weeks.

Construction is underway on the new High School building and new Student Center/Multipurpose building, and both buildings are on schedule to open in January 2020.

Imagine the Impact
 
The new High School building and Student Center/Multipurpose building will provide improved spaces for all students. Expanded and enhanced learning spaces for Lower, Middle, and High School students, and a MultiPurpose building offering a full-service cafeteria and space for more P.E. programming will benefit every student. The new High School building will provide high school students a place to call their own. Student life will be enriched with more students at all grade levels.
 
Even as The Howard School grows its footprint, its unique teaching model will remain. Robust teacher programming will continue to best support each student in their language-based learning needs.
 
By opening The Howard School doors wider, more children who will benefit from this proven learning model can develop their individual talents and become prepared for their bright futures.
