the allen-stevenson school annual fund The Annual Fund is Allen-Stevenson's main fundraising endeavor because it provides important unrestricted revenues for teaching and learning at the School. We encourage every family and friend to give at any level they can since high participation levels are crucial to the School. Strong participation in the Annual Fund sends an important message of community support, which is immensely helpful when the School applies for funding from foundations, corporations and businesses. We strive for the highest participation possible from all members of our community. Tuition and fees only cover a portion of the School's educational expenses. The Annual Fund helps fill the “gap” between tuition and the actual cost to educate an Allen-Stevenson boy. Faculty compensation is the largest item in our budget. Our dedicated and talented faculty is highly professional and forms the foundation of learning for Allen-Stevenson boys. Annual giving also bolsters the scholarship program, physical education, the arts program, equipment costs, library needs, instructional tools for the classroom and even the electricity and maintenance of the School. All donors who give in this fiscal year will be listed in the 2008-2009 Annual Giving Report. Please join our growing community of contributors by sending in your tax-deductible gift today. Your Annual Fund gift and participation are significant. Every gift counts!

our mission Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen. In the belief that there are many ways to be a boy, the School offers an ongoing commitment to each student and uses the best insights and tools available to understand him as a whole person. We inspire in each boy an appreciation of responsible citizenship and a lifelong love of learning. How We Accomplish Our Mission Allen-Stevenson’s vigorous, pre-secondary program of academics, athletics, and the arts teaches boys to value the gratifying process by which excellence is attained. By creating a joyful, safe environment for learning, the School seeks to ensure a productive, diverse community of learners. We challenge our students to take suitable risks, learn from their mistakes, and support each other. Ultimately, we encourage boys to move through life strongly and rightly—with confidence, knowledge, enthusiasm, resilience, and respect for all.

the seal

The Allen-Stevenson School seal is composed of symbols that reflect the spirit of the School. 1883 is the date the School was founded by Francis Bellows Allen. The motto, Fortiter et Recte, “Strongly and Rightly,” is a goal of every Allen-Stevenson boy. The Lamp of Enlightenment symbolizes the School’s commitment to an “enlightened traditional environment.”

allen-stevenson and its community Allen-Stevenson promotes diverse perspectives, honest dialogue and mutual respect. This educational process requires constant engagement and considerate thinking. As participants in a vigorous learning environment, all of us are obliged to accept the experiences, dignity and rights of others. Therefore, faculty and staff, administrators, students past and present, parents and trustees are expected to: • Demonstrate an awareness of and respect for the human experiences that exist within the diverse cultures that make up the world in which we live; • Incorporate in the life of the School a diversity that may include – but is not limited to – race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, learning style, physical ability, sexual orientation, family structure or socio-economic status; and • Acquire the knowledge, sensitivity and skills necessary for participating in cross-cultural interactions and promoting mutual understanding. Allen-Stevenson’s commitment to an inclusive educational community informs our admissions policies, our hiring practices, our curriculum, and the allocation of our resources.

the allen-stevenson song We hail thee, Allen-Stevenson Fortiter et Recte. With joy untold the blue and gold will be with us always. The days grow short as we grow tall, our faith grows firm, our fears grow small. We hail thee, Allen-Stevenson Fortiter et Recte. This song becomes a part of the repertoire of every Allen-Stevenson boy. The words and music are by Rolande Young Schrade, ASCAP, who taught music at Allen-Stevenson from 1968-1989.

the unicorn

One of the most famous of the fabulous beasts, the mascot of the School is known for being decent and pure. A fleet and mighty warrior, the unicorn exemplifies the fortitude of character and strength of conviction that the School seeks to give every Allen-Stevenson boy.
