Excellence Access and
Belonging Momentum The Campaign For Our Community
I am thrilled to share the school’s 2022-23 impact report, which shows the remarkable outcomes made possible by your generosity and unwavering commitment during this second public year of our $70 million Williston Builds campaign.—Robert W. Hill III, Head of School
Build It Forward
Earlier this fall, we asked two dozen alums, ranging from the class of 1965 to the class of 2013, an open-ended question: What did Williston Northampton build in you? Their answers ran the gamut—creativity, leadership, opportunity, character, and more—but all shared a common theme rooted in their formative experiences at the school and their desire to build the same opportunities for the next generation of students. Hear more from these alumni below—and tell us what Williston built in you when you make your gift to support students today.
