The Great Boys campaign aims to raise $30 million to fund capital projects and programs that directly support the School’s mission and its Centennial Strategic Plan.
- Innes Field (complete and fully funded)
Lau Family Wing (complete and fully funded)
- State-of-the-art turf field has enhanced athletic training, coaching, and recreational opportunities
- Construction on this project began in July 2011 and was completed in September 2012
- Three-storey academic wing includes new classrooms for Grades 7 to 12, break-out rooms and Harkness table seminar rooms
- The construction of this facility opened space within the School’s existing facilities, allowing for the construction of the Margaret Donnelly Library for our Lower School students, and additional Upper School classrooms
- Benefits of the Lau Family Wing
- A broader and richer program for all students
- Additional classroom and resource space for Middle and Upper School students
- Increased diversity of curricular offerings and more opportunities for differentiated learning
- Smaller class sizes, particularly in English and Mathematics
The Library and the Commons(estimated cost $13 million)
- We are committed to enhancing the School’s facilities as well as strengthening many of the curricular and co-curricular programs that have become recognized as pillars of a Crescent School education.
- Crescent Student Services/R & D in Boys' Education
- Expand professional development opportunities for Crescent faculty in the study of education boys
- Promote and increase research partnerships with leading international educational institutions
- Robotics and Technology
- Fund the national and international Robotics competitions that Crescent’s award-winning Robotics teams participate in on an annual basis
- Develop a completely wireless campus
- Student Financial Aid
- Expand opportunities for Crescent to recruit the best and brightest students, regardless of family income
- Crescent’s university-style Library will allow the School to cement academic excellence and literacy as our students mature, which we’ve committed to do through our Strategic Plan. It will provide quiet spaces for students to think and study, and ample room for teachers to bring classes, conduct research and access the expertise of the Head of Libraries and Information Literacy, making the Library an adjunct to the classroom. Learning how to navigate the resources of a 21st-century Library will undoubtedly help them more confidently use the facilities available to them when they graduate and go off to university.
- As part of any construction domino effect, the building of a new Library frees up the space that houses our current Library. That space will be totally re-designed as a gathering hub – The Commons -- for Upper School students and will house critical services such as University Counselling and Crescent Student Services.
- As its name would indicate University Counselling helps both our boys and their parents navigate the often complicated process of researching universities, specific programs and the application process, both in Canada and abroad.
- Crescent Student Services again works closely with individual students and their parents to provide support and enrichment opportunities in a completely personalized manner. These are important services and programs that help our boys to be more aware of and successful in today’s global society, especially in their senior years with us.
