Gifts in support of capital projects improve the school’s physical plant.
Capital gifts support improvements to the school’s residential, academic, and athletic infrastructure. This page highlights the three top priorities. For a more comprehensive list of capital needs, please contact the Advancement Office.
The school seeks to raise $6.5M to build a new synthetic turf athletic field for our field hockey, soccer, and lacrosse teams; to resurface the track; to upgrade the current football field by adding synthetic turf and rebuilding our bleachers and press box; and to reconfigure the parking lots.
This project reflects our respect for the history and tradition of athletics at Stevenson, our commitment to students’ health and well-being, and our belief that athletics is a prime site for experiential learning and for establishing lasting values and lifelong relationships. On a practical level, it will once again allow us to schedule games and practices for our 18 field teams without impinging on our students’ time for study and community activities.
Phase One (COMPLETE)After the AP environmental science class removed over 300 pine saplings from the area for replanting, the trees were cleared from the new field site.
Phase Two (COMPLETE)
The site was graded and synthetic turf was installed for a new soccer/lacrosse/field hockey field. The new turf has natural infill rather than rubber crumb. Additional parking, pathways, and retaining walls were also constructed.
Phase Three (April 2018 - September 2019)
The new press box and bleachers will be installed in Spring 2018 while the school continues to raise funds to resurface our existing track and install a new synthetic playing surface on our current football field. We hope this project will be completed by the time school reopens in September 2019.
