The Campaign for Waring

Faculty and Student Support, New School Building, Passive House Sustainability


We Did It!

Thanks to the outstanding generosity of more than 350 Campaign for Waring donors, we have reached our $6 million fundraising goal. This outpouring of community support has already had a tremendous impact on our school. Student and faculty supports have already begun, and construction on our new Passive House school building will begin soon. Read more about the campaign's goals and view a list of donors below.

Faculty and Student Support

Community and Environment photo webWaring mindfully builds a robust, caring, and respectful community around a shared ethic of learning. Waring seeks out circles, whether it is sitting together in All-School Meeting, discussing an excerpt of a text in Humanities class, or joining hands on the quad to start the year. Wanting to welcome more people and ideas into Waring's circle, the Trustees and faculty created, in 2015, a comprehensive Strategic Plan committed to diversity and affordability for students and bolstered development for teachers and staff. $1,000,000 raised during the Campaign for Waring will support Waring's students and faculty through financial aid and professional development.

School Building Plan

$5 million of the Campaign for Waring will pay to design and build a new School Building. Designs by GO Logic are underway for a building that addresses many areas of need for Waring. The new school building will:

  • Add a new All-School Meeting space
  • Expand faculty and student commons
  • Foster community and allow faculty and students to interact spontaneously on porches, nooks, and within classrooms
  • Provide additional classroom and conference space
  • Enhance the form and function of administrative offices
  • Offer a proper welcome and reception area for visitors

Passive House Project

Sun draft floor planThe new school building will incorporate Passive House Sustainability designs. This European standard of sustainability sets a high bar for energy efficiency as well as air and light quality through a tight, meticulously designed, “envelope.” To reduce the building's ecological impact, the new school building will be engineered to harness the warmth of the sun during the winter and to block hot sunrays during the summer. The new building will also provide our faculty a chance to utilize the new physical space as a teaching tool to help students measure energy consumption and observe conservation in action. Waring hopes to be the first school on the North Shore to build a Passive House building.
