Special Appeal

At the heart of our school is the FAIS gym, a space for community, activity and inspiration. Built in 1998 as part of the administration building, the school gym serves a central role in our campus. From games of Ahh! to graduation ceremonies, this space is host to our students, families and guests on a daily basis.

For over 20 years, this space has served our community. With your support, we can invest in this space and make the necessary (and exciting) improvements that will bring the space and our extracurricular programs to the next level.

Watch the Special Appeal video below!


Installing new Sport Court ™ floors with a wood look and updated lines will elevate both the look and usability of the gym space. 

The traction and shock absorption of the material is suitable for competition up to the level of NCAA Championships, while giving the gym the look and feel of a maple sports surface. The durability of the material and the moisture resistance make this a sustainable option for our community's needs.

Retractable bleachers will allow the school to welcome guests for sporting events, provide seating for families at graduation, and reduce the staff and volunteer time currently spent putting out seating. This practical addition to the space will be utilized daily by our community and guests.



Perhaps the most exciting new addition to the space would be the buildout of a bouldering wall in the Préau multi-purpose room. This update will provide limitless additions to the physical and extracurricular education opportunities for our students.

The multi-dimensional, 40 foot wall will have adjustable route options to serve the needs of specific student groups, challenging and engaging children of all ages.



Each family who gives $5,000 and above will have a reserved seat for you +1 on our new bleachers any time you're on campus for the next two years! (Must call 24hrs in advance to reserve).


Each family who gives $2,500 or more will have their name on a square of the new gym floor! What a great opportunity to recognize your family or foundation support!


Every gift makes an impact! It is through our collective effort and support that we can bring this exciting project to life! Make your gift today, or give live during our Virtual Gala on Saturday, 4/10 at 5:30PM. Thank you for your wholehearted commitment to FAIS.
