Support

The Gunnery Fund

The Gunnery Fund is the annual giving program that raises financial support for the school. Gifts to fund flow directly into the school’s operating budget, which supports all academic and extracurricular programs, makes improvements to campus, and funds faculty development and student financial aid.

The following are a few things that were made possible last year thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents, grandparents, friends, faculty and students:
  • Five guest speakers came to campus as part of the Speaker Series “Women on the Edge”
  • Thirteen students traveled to New York City to sing with the cast of “School of Rock” on Broadway
  • The Physics lab has a brand new SMART board!
  • There is a much-needed new mini-bus to transport students to athletic contests, field trips, and off-campus extracurricular activities.  

All gifts to The Gunnery Fundof all sizesadd up to make a big impact in the lives of The Gunnery’s students and faculty, every day.

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
