2021 Virtual Gala Surpasses Fundraising Goal!

The results are in from our 2021 Virtual Gala Special Appeal! Not only did we hit our goal, we flew past it. Thanks to your support, we raised over $230,000 toward our goal of $150,000 for the gym renovation and climbing wall installation. Because of your generosity, not only will we be able to undertake the original projects -- we will also be able to:


  • Update the Préau floor
  • New scoreboard and timer
  • New chairs for student athletes and gym activities
  • Replace volleyball nets
  • Purchase new basketballs, volleyballs, and medicine balls
  • Upgrade gym speaker
  • Replace basketball hoops with retractable backboards for increased gym usability
  • Conduct special training for staff to use the Bouldering Wall as a teaching tool
  • Install new outdoor play structure for Maternelle
  • Replace old play structure near the field
  • Build a new entrance for the FAIS Forest


What's even more exciting: The gym and climbing wall will be completed in time for the beginning of the school year (bleachers will be installed in mid-October). In the meantime, check out the concept renderings!


Couldn't make it? Visit to watch the recording and consider participating in the Special Appeal (select "Annual Gala” Fund) -- it's not too late to get involved!


Remember: your gift of $2,500 or above gets your name on a square of the new gym floor! What a great opportunity to recognize your family or foundation support (gifts must be received by June 30, 2021 for naming opportunities).


Thank you, again, to everyone who joined us for our second-ever Virtual Gala and for your continued investment in and commitment to our community!
