A Campaign To Benefit Both Current & Future Generations
St. David’s School is already a premier academic community with a Christian ethos of faculty, staff, curriculum and character. We welcome families of all faiths and backgrounds and we’re challenging ourselves to become even better, to ensure Inspired Futures—not just now—but for the next generation of leaders who will make a difference both at home and around the world.
The Inspired Futures initiative is a shared effort between parents, grandparents, alumni families and our community. By working together, we can build an even brighter future for our students, simply by enhancing our Three Foundations of Excellence: Academics, Facilities, and Financial Strength.
Facilities should facilitate learning.
School buildings are nurturing environments where students spend their formative years. Shouldn’t they be as unique and inviting as our homes?
We’re speaking, of course, about the buildings where we learn, study, eat, pray, and play. Inspiration and discovery are essential to the life and mission of St. David’s School, and these values will be reflected in our facilities. Open, bright rooms foster curiosity, reflection, and interaction. Well-designed science labs fuel an inquisitive, entrepreneurial spirit, so students stretch their creativity beyond convention.
“Ultimately, successful design thinking relies upon strong empathy for other people.”– Ted Morris, Ph.D. Founder, CrossM, LLC. &

Your contribution ensures that St. David’s will be able to create environments that are welcoming and intimate, stimulating and safe. Natural sunlight, optimized acoustics, and the latest technology all play important roles. Our facilities will include both personal space for quiet reflection, and common areas that encourage the exchange of ideas.
Our forward-thinking faculty have designed a learning concept that we can’t wait to bring to life—a 2,000 square foot indoor/outdoor Innovation Warriors lab. This new space lets students apply themselves to solving real-world problems both locally and globally. The Innovation Warriors concept is built upon the four cornerstones of design thinking, innovation, entrepreneurship, and servant leadership. Engaging both their minds and their hands, students develop and practice the processes of problem solving using everything from small hand tools to 3D printers.
We’re creating environments where students can discover their God-given strengths, bond with each other and connect with the world around them. One way to do that is through new construction. With the generosity of the St. David’s community, we will have a new Middle School, and a state of the art Library, an Upper School addition, a fieldhouse, the tennis complex, outdoor practice track and cross country/nature trail, a baseball complex, and soccer/lacrosse fields. So yes, our campuses will look different in the months and years ahead. But these new spaces are designed to make St. David’s even more enriching, give it even more heart. We’re creating environments where students can connect with each other, discover their God-given strengths and passions, and the world around them.
