Maplebrook is proud of its mission to prepare students with the character and skills needed to be productive members of today’s society. Therefore, it's difficult to overemphasize the impact and importance of this educational opportunity. While this can be said of most private school experiences, there’s something truly inspiring about our campus. A school is made of more than bricks and mortar; simply taking a tour one can sense the commitment, respect, expertise, and dedication of the community at large.
The expense in providing such individualized, structured, and specialized programming is often a foreign concept to many and cannot be covered by tuition dollars alone. Fundraising is one way in which Maplebrook bridges the gap between tuition revenue and operating/capital expenses. In addition to our annual fund and special events, the school directs occasional capital campaigns to finance specific building projects, such as Merck Chapel and Whalen Hall and the Internet Cafe. Scholarships and other forms of financial aid are now available to students of ability, character, and diversity who were not able to attend our School in years past. Computer technology is available throughout the campus and classrooms, dormitories, and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Maplebrook also maintains funds dedicated to staff development and has a planned giving program called the Merck Legacy Fund.
It is clear that the generosity of those who care so much about Maplebrook has had a major impact on our campus and its people. Thanks to the support of Maplebrook alumni, parents, friends, and faculty/staff, our students and teachers have been able to experience the same enriching, cultural, social and recreational benefits afforded to students in any other independent school. Whatever your affiliation with Maplebrook (alumni, parent, past parent, grandparent, friend), we hope that you will please consider making a gift to the school.
