We invite you to join us in building a legacy for generations of scholar-athletes.

GOAL: $25M

in new capital gifts to upgrade the athletic facilities and to increase the endowment:
  • to provide playing fields and indoor facilities that will complement our academic program
  • to provide our teacher-coaches with excellent “classrooms” to continue the education of our boys beyond the academic day
  • to raise new endowment that will ensure a need-blind admission and enrollment policy, compensate faculty and staff well, and provide the students and faculty with the necessary resources to excel in and out of the classroom

The facilities upgrade includes:

  • State-of-the-art, multipurpose Indoor Athletic Facility to allow students to practice and compete on-campus, year-round in multiple sports. This facility includes a new fitness and wellness center.
  • High quality artificial turf for upgrading varsity football, soccer, lacrosse, and baseball fields 
  • New tennis complex with 12 new courts nestled in the woods
  • Renovations to the McNay Palaistra to foster academic and community engagement in new and innovative ways
  • an 8-lane track and room for field events as well as fields for lacrosse, soccer, and baseball

Growth of the endowment ensures:

  • a need-blind admission and enrollment policy that allows us to accept students without taking into account their families’ financial circumstances and ensures that the full need of every boy who requires financial support is met, resulting in a diverse community of boys from various backgrounds and neighborhoods in and around Boston
  • faculty and staff salaries and benefits that exceed our peer schools and help attract and retain talented teachers committed to our boys and the RL mission.
  • an academic program and extracurricular offerings that expose our boys to a well-rounded education focusing on building their character, their skills, and their ability to think critically.

A Campaign for Roxbury Latin is a capital fundraising effort and is separate from the Annual Fund, which provides immediate support to students, faculty, and the program in that given year. All of our fundraising efforts will allow us to achieve the goals that were outlined in the School’s Strategic Plan.
