In honor of their sons and the class of 2022, the parents of the sixth form are directing their collective philanthropy to help fund the building
To honor the Class of 2022 and recognize their meaningful and layered partnership with 教师, the project for this year’s 六年级的礼物 will be the construction of two faculty residences. To continue to retain and to attract top talent to a rural boarding school, 住房是一个关键组成部分. In the last twenty years, 索尔斯堡 School has greatly expanded its on-campus living space. This happened as we grew the enrollment of the School by more than fifty students. 作为一个结果, 索尔斯堡 was able to expand our classroom and program offerings with additional depth and talent to an already committed team of faculty members. 简单地说, our Head of School and Dean of Faculty had the opportunity to sculpt our most important resource, 教师, to fit the educational vision we all had for the boys. 然而, 自2020年以来, regional housing prices and a limited real estate inventory have only compounded the strategic need for the School to build on this competitive advantage that is now in a precarious position. Since our core business is creating and enhancing the relational learning opportunities for our boys with a dynamic and talented faculty, there is nothing more important to help us preserve our mission.
随着增长，机遇也随之而来, in order to perpetuate and preserve our strengths, additional faculty housing is an essential component of our strategic plan. With the generosity of our parents, 索尔斯堡 plans to raise $750,000 for new faculty housing. We hope you will join your fellow parents in participating in this impactful gift that is deeply rooted in 索尔斯堡 tradition.
To best achieve our mission of being the premier school for boys, 索尔斯堡 must attract and retain a passionate and dedicated group of faculty to serve as teachers, 导师, 导师, 教练, 也是男孩们的模特. The life of a boarding school educator is unique in the professional world, and it requires a special type of person to devote their life to engaging with boys during the academic day, 放学后在排练厅, 在操场上, and in the dormitories at night and on weekends. Greater flexibility in the housing pool will be transformational for the school and support those who have the greatest impact on the boys and their experience on the Hilltop.

It will give the school more options for its current community, and will add flexibility as we look to hire teachers to educate and care for future generations of Knights. The challenges of hiring and retaining a diverse and skilled faculty are numerous, and in recent years we have experienced several housing challenges as the local housing markets have forced us to look increasingly from a smaller radius that allows for daily commuting.
