When looking for the very best in independent, progressive education, where do you turn?

If you are like many in our community, you come to Breakwater.

Here you know you will find a unique place that immerses students, early childhood through grade 8, in an inclusive, small school environment that bolsters their social and intellectual skills while nurturing their innate sense of curiosity and adventure.

We have a very special community here made up of educators, families and friends who together inspire our children to live well on the planet, embrace their whole being and realize their full potential. It does, in fact, take a village, and ours is really quite amazing. 

But we cannot do it without your support.

As with most independent schools, the full cost of a Breakwater education is not covered by the price of tuition and fees alone. We need your help to continue to provide the extraordinary level of experience we give to our students, and grow in our capacity. 

This year we launched a “High 5” campaign in recognition of the various meaningful ways in which support is given to Breakwater- through volunteering, corporate giving donations, soliciting friends and family to become involved, attending school events and bringing friends, and: giving to the Annual Fund. If together these five ways of giving represent a hand, the Annual Fund is our index finger. The number one most immediately beneficial contribution in that it supports every facet of the school’s operation including programming, faculty compensation, professional development, and financial aid.  

Whether $5 or $5,000, your contribution to the Annual Fund is helping our teachers to impact the lives of children in ways that will last a lifetime – by putting us on the leading edge of the tinkering trend by placing wood and hammers into the small, eager hands of our early childhood students; sending elementary students on incredible adventures through our innovative day and overnight field trip programs; inspiring middle schoolers to think deeply about their place in history through improved academic resources met with authentic, life changing learning experiences; or providing resources that bring our entire community outside everyday and in meaningful contact with the natural world.

Breakwater is committed to staying at the forefront in every way, continually striving to provide the very best  – for you, for your loved ones, for every person in our community.  Please send your gift today. We are counting on your support.

Help us reach 100% participation in the Annual Fund this year. Already, 100% of our faculty, staff and Board of Trustees have contributed. Help us add 100% of our parents, grandparents and alumni. Make your contribution today through repeat giving or one time donation, through our website or by check.

Your donation is helping to make our ability to touch lives, inspire minds, extend our reach, and realize our Mission stronger. Right here. Right now.

Thank you so much for your help.
