Capital Campaign

We passionately believe in the promise and potential of our innovative model, and the impact it will have on our children and future generations of global citizens.

A capital campaign is a strategic fundraising effort designed to meet the long-term needs of an organization. Over the course of a student’s enrollment at most independent schools, families can expect to participate in 2-3 capital campaigns.

At PKS, our capital campaigns to date have focused on fulfilling the multi-phase Master Plan for the construction of new buildings and the renovation of existing buildings that will grow PKS into a full pre-K to Grade 8 school. The PKS campus will be purpose-built to deliver our program, and serve as our students’ launching pad, built through the generosity of visionary donors, past and present.

The current phase is our most ambitious project to date - the construction of a 30,000 sq ft U-Wing front entrance building that will be the face of our school.  Designed with our mission and vision at the forefront, this three story building will feature:

  • A merging of eastern and western design elements and landscaping

  • Sustainable design with LEED Gold considerations, solar panels, water recycling, etc.

  • Large classrooms, lit by natural and modern lighting; excellent soundproofing

  • Indoor and outdoor work spaces designed for collaboration and reflection

  • A dedicated music room, art studio, and maker space
