Capital Campaign Accomplishments

The first ever capital campaign began in 1992. Since that first effort, capital fund raising has achieved many milestones:

  • Retire the balance owed on the School’s purchase in 1991 of its basic campus property.

  • Provide a new Middle School building designed to support the needs of the growing program for adolescents.

  • Build a 3600 sq. ft play pavilion, which the School had never had.

  • Renovation of existing classroom buildings and fellowship hall buildings for new uses.

  • Much-expanded parking facilities and inter-campus drives.

  • Construction of a Upper Elementary Complex to support the integrated education program.

  • Construction of modern Elementary classrooms tailored to the educational program.

  • Acquisition of additional nearby acreage for a new high school facility and multi-purpose gymnasium.

ABOVE: The driveway (aka carpool line) serves an educational purpose as it is lined with native Texas plants. On the right is the remodeled Studio for Dance and Theatre Arts.

ABOVE: Middle School building and a portion of the adjacent play pavilion. The new building designs feature large expanses of glass which create a feeling of openess and contact with nature.

ABOVE: Exterior patio for lower elementary classroom. With the mild Houston winters, this area can be used almost year round.
