Bowman Capital Campaign Helps Students Discover. Create. Become.

Last year Bowman celebrated over 20 years of dedication to preparing children for their futures in an ever-changing and globalizing world. This year, we are expanding our educational impact with a new, exciting undertaking to expand the learning resources for our students as well as our community. Our next innovation: Building a new “Learning Village” that includes new indoor and outdoor spaces for educational exploration and activities.

Bowman’s current families and staff have contributed to our first ever Capital Campaign with an astounding $3 million and 96% participation. From day one, we have had their complete support in the need for expanding the campus. Bowman families have been deeply invested in our mission and values throughout the history of our school, and we are honored by their generosity and commitment.

We are now asking all alumni and friends of Bowman to support these foundational changes to our campus, which will enable us to better serve the expanding needs of our students’ education. Bowman alumni often mention that their success in high school, college, and career can be directly related to the unique learning opportunities they had at Bowman. Key areas include individualized learning plans, cultural awareness, time management, respect of others, and team collaboration skills. Let’s help all students experience these opportunities and chance at success.

The Class of 2018 reached 100% participation in the Capital Campaign, and we challenge each graduating class to meet this same achievement.

As we grow with new buildings, resources, and opportunities, Bowman will always have the same commitment to encouraging all students to Discover. Create. Become.

Learning Village

1. The IDEALab

Provides students with a dedicated space for STEAM and enrichment activities, including a science and media lab, woodshop, and maker center.

2. The Children’s House

Includes three- and four-year-olds in two multi-age classrooms with specially designed indoor and outdoor environments to set a foundation for future Bowman learners.

3. Gymnasium/Multi-purpose Building

Allows for hosting school-wide activities, on-site sports practices, and community events.

4. Stage

Expands our commitment to the performing arts as a means to stimulate students’ creativity, self-expression, and confidence.

5. Outdoor Learning Environments

Offers open-ended interactions, exploration, discovery, and connection with nature through our science gardens, greenhouse, sunken learning circle, patios, walkways, and terraces.

“We don’t want to keep long-term debt on the school, so we are trying to borrow the least amount possible so that we don’t have a 30 year mortgage that we are still paying off for the price of these buildings.”
