At The Craig School, we understand that education is more than the culmination of knowledge, it is the creation of an equitable learning environment that brings out the best from all students, including those with language-based learning disabilities. We believe that the classroom provides space to promote opportunity and reduce inequality; it is a place forindividuals of all abilities, backgrounds, and competencies to find their voice and reach their full potential.
Over the past 40 years, The Craig School has been a safe space for students to learn how to express their authentic voice and to find others with similar passions, strengths, and challenges. It has been a refuge for parents as they discover other families with kindred journeys. As I conclude my fourth full month of tenure here, I am energized by the raw enthusiasm of our students as they excitedly engage with their peers, their schoolwork, and their passions and I am moved by our educators’ commitment to focus on the quality of each student’s experience.
Today, after many months of change in our world, our mission and core values endure, and the need for The Craig School is greater than ever before. Currently, The Craig School is home to 130 students and almost 700 alumni and families, whose collective experiences have enriched not only them personally, but also their families, their communities, and even the world. We are uniquely positioned to continue to offer an extraordinary learning and growing experience for our students in a safer risk-mitigated environment —a good portion of our success is your continued support of the school at its initiatives.
Your gift to the Annual Fund reinforces our mission and provides resources for continued growth including, but not limited to:
- Competitive salaries and benefits to recruit and retain highly talented teachers and specialists
- Cutting edge technology and programs benefiting our students’ learning styles
- A complement of enrichment and athletic programs
- Financial aid to those who would otherwise not benefit from the extraordinary education at The Craig School
- A safe and secure campus environment
We encourage you, our community members, to participate in a capacity that is meaningful to you. Your support is an expression of your belief in The Craig School and your desire to see The Craig School remain for many generations to come. We ask you to consider joining us in this moment of need for The Craig School. Every penny raised goes back to the school we all love!
