Report of Giving 20222023

Board Chair Message


Dear Poly Friends,


I extend my heartfelt appreciation to all of you for your generosity and dedication to ensuring the success of our students and our beloved institution. Since our last Report of Giving, Poly has made several significant advances, a testament to the collective efforts of our esteemed donors, exceptional faculty, and committed staff.

I am delighted to share some highlights of our successful 2022–2023 school year:


  • Financial Performance: We raised nearly $12M, evidence of the Poly community’s belief in our mission and the enduring impact of our educational approach. Poly’s endowment now stands at $97 million, ensuring our sustainability for generations to come. These funds are deepening the experience for our students.


  • Academic Excellence: Our academic program remains unsurpassed, as we continue to foster well-rounded and conscientious individuals. We have seen a 19% increase in applications, strengthening our selectivity and allowing us to welcome an exceptional and diverse student body. Each graduating student from our Class of 2023 has now embarked on their new academic journeys in prestigious colleges around the world.


  • Inspiring Initiatives: Poly students flourished under the guidance of our devoted faculty and with the help of several enhancements in our curriculum and programming. Recent initiatives include the implementation of the Orton-Gillingham (OG) Method for literacy education in the Lower School, the expansion of our Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum in the Upper School, and the renewed travel opportunities and in-person events provided by the Global Initiatives Program (GIP) for students K–12.


Again, thank you for your loyal participation in the Poly community. Together, we stand united in our shared vision of educational excellence, empowering the voices of tomorrow and shaping a brighter future for all.

Message from Head of School



Dear Poly Community,


With profound gratitude and enthusiasm, I share with you the many ways in which your invaluable support of Poly positively impacted our institution during the last academic year. As our esteemed donors, you have been the pillars of our success, and it is with great pleasure that I present to you the 2022–2023 Report of Giving, which affirms the transformative power of education and your unwavering embrace of our mission.

At Poly, we prepare students for life beyond the classroom, equipping them with the knowledge, compassion, and intellectual fortitude required to navigate the complexities of the modern global landscape. The theme of this year’s Report of Giving, "Inspiring Voices," embodies the essence of this objective. We firmly believe that by introducing Poly students to a range of conversations, perspectives, and ideas, we are cultivating a campus where knowledge meets empathy.

In this issue, you will learn how Poly has created a welcoming environment for new and inspiring voices, from the development of an illuminating speaker series that has been galvanized by the support of parents of the Class of 2023 to Poly’s ever-expanding global outreach programs and educational exchanges between students, alumni, and thought leaders from around the world. Additionally, as this was our first full post-pandemic year, we were thrilled to bring back more in-person events, in which our vibrant community could gather together in celebration.


None of these endeavors would have been possible without our donors' unyielding contributions and support. With your help, we stand resolute in our commitment to empowering young minds. We envision a future where each graduating class will become the torchbearers of change, promoting understanding, curiosity, and lifelong learning as they navigate the world.


I reiterate my sincere gratitude for the trust you place in us. As you read this issue of the Report of Giving, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on the impact we can achieve when united in our pursuit of academic success for every Poly student.


With appreciation,
