ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Laguna Blanca is a premier EK-12 independent school. Our academic, artistic, and athletic strength resounds throughout the community. Our core values — scholarship, character, balance, community — are the pillars that allow our faculty and students to establish meaningful personal experiences and create transformative academic journeys.

It is from this position of excellence that we launch a $10 million campaign to build upon our strength and secure our future.

Below is what we envision:

CENTER FOR SCIENCE AND INNOVATION - $6.5M
Together, we will continue to promote discovery through the Center for Science and Innovation, an intellectual ecosystem that will support future transformation and growth.

GROW OUR ENDOWMENT - $2M
Through growing our endowment, we ensure that our school has a sustainable future by continuing to empower brilliant students from all walks of life and attracting exceptional faculty.

CAMPUS IMPROVEMENTS - $1.5M
Through campus improvements, we will protect the investment and rich history of Laguna Blanca School by transforming its indoor and outdoor learning environments to reflect our high academic standards.

Rob Hereford, Head of School

As a community, we enter this campaign from a position of strength. We have so much to celebrate as we eagerly anticipate our innovative future!
