Preparing Boys for Life

Realize inspiring spaces for every boy

Haverford School middle school building

Realizing inspiring spaces for every boy means having a continuum of safe and appropriate learning spaces, from pre-kindergarten through sixth form. Previous campaigns have rebuilt much of our campus. Now is the time for the capstone project - a new Middle School that is pedagogically appropriate, safe and accessible, with flexible spaces that facilitate high-quality teaching and learning.

News and updates

Our space that we hope to create for the boys is one where the program drives the space, the space doesn’t drive the program. They’re going to be in work environments where there won’t be too many walls – they’ll have to communicate and collaborate on a global level. We want to be sure they have those skills coming out of Middle School.
Jay Greytok '83, Head of Middle School
