Grounds for Our Future - Progress to Date

In 2018, Board Members and Co-Chairs Catherine Corry and Sudie Anning began to work with school leadership to plan for Grounds for Our Future, a project to re-envision our outdoor spaces on the St. Luke's School grounds. Phase 1, our beautiful child-centered playground, was opened in September 2019, and our renovated courtyard and amphitheater opened in September 2020.  

Even in the midst of unforeseen challenges, this project has provided outdoor space which is essential during this time. Working with MNLA, our talented architects, they evolved the plans to address new outdoor learning paradigms.

Thanks to the generosity of our community to date, we have received $4,946,000 of our $7,000,000 goal, which enabled us to address Phase 1 and Phase 2 of our project. We are currently fundraising for Phase 3, our athletic and learning space to be built on our roof.

We are truly grateful that the work we are doing together continues to serve our children in unexpected and beautiful ways.
