2013 - 2014 ANNUAL REPORT


Dear Friends of Archer, We share the 2013-2014 Annual Report to recognize and honor our supporters who have so generously and kindly contributed to the advancement of The Archer School for Girls. We are grateful for every act of service and every gift, no matter the size. An institution flourishes when there is a clear and shared purpose among its members. Archer’s purpose is extremely clear: the empowerment of girls through innovative education in a happy, healthy, girl-centric environment. As we anticipate our 20th anniversary next year, we reflect on how rapidly Archer has established itself as a beacon for contemporary girls’ education as evidenced by our many markers of success, including bountiful support from a broad base of constituents. Archer’s commitment to ongoing innovation and research is made possible through the gifts and service of our devoted parent association, our dynamic alumnae association, and the many friends of Archer who see in our graduates all the promise of a new generation of women leaders. We are proud of our distinguished Board of Trustees and their philanthropic leadership. We are also proud of the participation among our parents, alumnae, parents of alumnae, grandparents, friends, foundations and corporations. This generous participation in the Archer Fund emboldens our faculty and staff who themselves give unanimously every year and stands as a strong statement of confidence in Archer’s mission and future. Our annual campaign, The Archer Fund, surpassed our 2013-2014 goal by 12%, raising over $2.1 million. The 2013-2014 Archer Fund made possible several initiatives central to Archer’s mission: educational access to a diverse range of girls through our ambitious flexible tuition program; continued research on gendered pedagogy through our partnerships with universities and research institutes; professional development for our superb academic faculty; and extraordinary new facilities for both the arts and sciences. The opening of our new MediaSpace and The Saban IDEAlab herald Archer’s bold and innovative commitment to preparing girls for ascension in the fields of media and engineering arts. These facilities were made possible because Archer’s singular purpose resonates with parents, alumnae families, and foundations who also believe that it is essential to have women at the highest levels of leadership as the world tries to solve its most pressing problems. In addition to the success of the Archer Fund, the quiet phase of our capital campaign, The Campaign for Archer, continues to gain momentum, adding close to $5 million to reach the current $17.5 million that has been committed so far. We are very proud to have raised over $7 million in 2013-2014 for the benefit of every unique and promising Archer girl. We thank each donor and volunteer for believing so passionately in our mission and funding the programs that have kept Archer at the forefront of education designed exactly for how girls learn and thrive.

Sincerely yours,

Elizabeth English Head of School

Barbara Bruser Chair, Board of Trustees

HONORING THE MAYPOLE TRADITION


PASSION THROUGH PERFORMANCE


Dear Archer Friends, There is no clearer statement of belief in an organization’s mission than the generosity of its donors. In every donor group−parents, faculty, staff, alumnae, parents of alumnae, grandparents, friends and trustees−The Archer School for Girls enjoys a participation rate in annual giving that is at the highest levels of independent schools. It is with the deepest gratitude that we take this opportunity to thank the entire Archer community for its generous support of our mission and for its commitment to advancing the school. As Archer looks ahead to its twentieth year, it is recognized as a school at the forefront of innovative education, led by our visionary Head, Elizabeth English. Archer’s mission is being realized every day, in every classroom. To further that mission and to enhance how we serve today’s students as well as future generations of Archer students, we are moving ahead with our Campus Preservation and Improvement Plan. In addition to providing the facilities essential to a school serving both middle and upper school students, the Campus Plan is architecturally beautiful and environmentally respectful. The design reflects the ways in which girls learn best and its physical spaces will provide the flexibility necessary to meet the evolving challenges of providing a 21st century education. As we continue to move forward with Archer’s Campus Plan process, we thank you for your unwavering and generous support of Archer and for joining with us to realize this shared vision. We are confident that together we will achieve great things. Sincerely,

Justin Chang Vice Chair of Board of Trustees, Chair of Advancement Committee

“Archer possesses the unique ability to reach girls in their adolescence and carry them forward, allowing them to find their purpose and set their goals. Single sex education can remove barriers and distractions, inviting girls to be full participants in their education and school community. I am proud of the wealth of opportunities that Archer offers, the standards it aspires to, and the tools it equips our daughters with to go out in the world and make a difference. I’m equally proud to join the Board of Trustees and be a part of Archer’s future.”

DISCOVERING THE ART OF SCIENCE


The Campaign for Archer As inspired and visionary as Archer itself, our campus plan seeks to embody the 21st century paradigm that has become synonymous with The Archer School for Girls. Archer’s plan provides an elegant background for the School’s historic building and expands upon the garden courtyard theme of the current campus while providing a creative and inspiring expanded campus for our faculty and students. We are confident this improved campus will take teaching and learning to new heights. Toward this end, Archer continues to be blessed by the unlimited support of its community. We are very grateful for this support, both in time and treasure, toward our Campus Preservation and Improvement plan and express our heartfelt gratitude to the following donors.

The Gary David Goldberg Gym

“One of the comforting realizations about Gary’s life is that he was not only a first-rate writer and creator and producer but he was beloved. We tried to think of some way to honor his legacy. We tried to think big because he always did. We thought about what he loved. Kids, women, friends. Coaching, mentoring, learning, laughing. Basketball. Maybe we could build a gym. The Gary David Goldberg Memorial Gymnasium. The young women, the athletes of The Archer School for Girls, would finally have a home court and their coaches, mentors and parents would have a place to teach them to be a team. I know Gary would like that.” Diana Meehan Thank you to the many friends of Gary David Goldberg for their generous expression of their love. We are very grateful.


Why We Give The Zeller Family,

Michael, Jennifer & Claire ’17 We support Archer because after merely one year, it is already proving to be a wonderfully transformative experience for our daughter. The questions she is being asked and the ways in which she is required to think are shaping her into the best version of herself–an articulate, self-assured and intellectually courageous young woman who will be a force to be reckoned with. We are grateful that under the visionary leadership of Elizabeth English, Archer may be the only school around that can boast of being an academic powerhouse with a warm and caring environment for girls. And we couldn’t have asked for a better parent community. We love Archer!

Andrea & Barry Cayton & Family We support Archer because we are aligned with the philosophy of the school and we feel the obligation and desire to contribute to the Archer Community. Over the years, we’ve watched our children be the recipients of the generosity of others who came before us. This is true here on Archer’s beautiful campus and at the Harvard-Westlake and Curtis schools our sons have attended. Since we only have one daughter, we wanted Lindsay to be in a school that feels like a community and is focused on how girls learn. Archer is that school for us. We were drawn to the leadership of Elizabeth English who had a vision of a school that empowers and supports girls to achieve excellence academically while emotionally supporting them and fostering self-esteem. Given that our daughter graduates in two years, she will not be the direct beneficiary of our support for Archer’s master plan, but we firmly believe that it’s important to give back and to model philanthropy for our children.

The Rubin Family

Archer gave Jaymie an outstanding educational foundation, and the confidence, leadership skills, resilience and sensibility that enabled her to make a seamless transition to life at Emory University. She entered Archer as a timid 7th grader and, six years later, with Archer’s guidance and support, she’s emerged as a poised, empowered and ambitious young woman. Archer let Jaymie stretch her educational opportunities, literally and figuratively, through dance, science research, and numerous other pioneering programs. Archer is willing to innovate and explore new possibilities, and it motivates the girls to do the same. Dance was an integral part of Jaymie’s experience at Archer. She participated in Dance Troupe all six years and was intimately involved in the growth and development of the Dance program, as a dancer and choreographer, captain, and ultimately, Head Captain. We were so inspired by Jaymie’s evolution that our family made a gift to the Dance program to ensure its further expansion.

Roberta Weintraub I was looking for a school like Archer but didn’t know its name. When I met Elizabeth and the staff, I knew Archer was the right place. I have always been in favor of single-sex education for both genders from 6th grade on. For girls, single-sex schools meet their needs and provide the opportunity and desire to enter into STEM fields that women don’t typically enter into. I appreciate Archer’s spirit of wanting to make this happen; I appreciate their acceptance of all that is possible; and, I appreciate their accomplishments of the last three years which in my opinion have been unsurpassed. This is why I support Archer.

Dan, Jeri, Rachel ’14 & Jacquelyn We believe in Archer’s mission to provide an academically rigorous, yet nurturing, environment that empowers girls to discover their passions and realize their potential. During our daughter’s sixth to twelfth grade journey, the Archer community embraced and enhanced her caring, intellectually curious and persevering attitude with an individualized attention that engaged, challenged and inspired. As an Archer graduate, she enters college with confidence, a resilient spirit and gratitude. In appreciation and with great optimism, our gifts are given in celebration of Archer’s commitment to diversity, financial aid and the promotion of the next generation of women leaders of distinctive character.

Why We Give Jill, Michael & Cailey Hall ’02 Cailey is a member of the class of 2002, the second class to graduate from Archer. As a family, we lived through Archer’s early years in temporary buildings in the Pacific Palisades and its move to the Eastern Star Home in 1999. Those were heady days, with ups and downs, as the founders, teachers, parents and students came together and worked through a myriad of problems to bring a dream to fruition: the dream of a school that offers young women an empowering, first class education that will prepare them to be future leaders in any field they chose to pursue. Today, we can see what those early efforts have produced—how this small, committed group, working together in pursuit of a dream, resulted in The Archer School for Girls, whose graduates are sought after by the most elite colleges in the country. We parents and those students have a profound and enduring bond to one another, and to Archer, and we feel privileged to be able to support our school into its future.


GRADUATING COURAGEOUS LEADERS


Why I Give Gavin Frank ’03 I feel connected to Archer because I truly feel that it’s molded the person I am today. Archer has provided me with the skills I use on a daily basis in my career, the confidence to pursue my dreams, and the ability to confront any challenge. I feel so lucky to have attended a school that was more of a second home than an institution, to have found a place where I had such a strong sense of belonging and to have made lifelong friends. I support Archer because it’s my hope for other young women to have the same positive experience I did.

It was at the request of our eldest daughter Lucie that we finally visited the campus. Seeing is believing. We believe in Archer, the inspired learners, founders, teachers, and administrators that we have come to know. It is a pleasure to give to the growing legacy. As Bea our younger daughter says, “Archer brings people closer.� There is a community here and we are glad to be a part of it.

A Night at the Movies The Fault in our Stars On the night of the last day of school, Archer community members kicked off the summer with two pre-release screenings of the movie The Fault in Our Stars, starring Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley, at 20th Century Fox Studios. Presented by the Archer Alumnae Association, the back-to-back screenings were a sell-out and attended by nearly 200 Archer students, parents, alumnae and alumnae parents. Archer parent Kerry Hernandez (Faith ’20) said, “It was the best way to kick off summer!” This fun and entertaining theater experience was made possible by the generosity of 20th Century Fox and Ann and Jim Gianopulos, parents of alumna Mimi Gianopulos ’07. Thank you!


Why I Give John Ohanesian I’ve always felt it’s important to get involved in my community. This was a lesson I learned early on from my parents. They taught me the importance of giving back one’s time, talent and treasury to one’s ability. Now I’m modeling this for my daughters, Adona ’07 and Ava ’13. My girls developed confidence, independence and a real sense of self while at Archer. I’m proud of them and I’m very proud to be a part of the School even when my girls are no longer students. In particular, I enjoy connecting my network of people with something I believe in. Someone may not know much about Archer but once they visit the campus, meet Elizabeth and the girls, their response is robust. When I see this successful outcome from my involvement, when connections are made that help the school, I feel I am doing my part. Over the last 11-12 years, I’ve watched the school grow. With Elizabeth as Head of School, Archer will have a true national reputation soon enough. People are engaged and the School is moving forward all the time.

Raise Your Paddle for Financial Aid By its mission, The Archer School for Girls is committed to providing access to the ambitious, joyful learning experience taking place in our classrooms every day. Archer is an educational community that supports and challenges young women to discover their passions and realize their true potential in a diverse and culturally rich environment.

Why We Give Aya & Earl Goldberg Archer is a very special school for our daughter, Mari. We have witnessed her transform into a strong and confident young woman because of Archer’s challenging academics, strong extra- curricular activities, supportive and nurturing environment, and exceptional faculty and staff. We also like that Mari is learning in a diverse community that is inclusive and reflects the face of greater Los Angeles. Elizabeth English’s clear vision and passionate leadership has unified the Archer community. We believe Ms. English recognizes the school’s current and future responsibilities and its obligations to its students, its community and to society as a whole. Because of all this, we are strong supporters of the Archer Fund and The Campaign for Archer. We believe that our support will contribute to the level of excellence that the School has attained today and will continue to achieve for many years to come.

At Archer, we believe that parent involvement contributes to student success. In keeping with this belief, we are grateful for the over 300 parents who have devoted their time, talents and resources to ensuring the APA (Archer Parent Association) programs and events benefiting Archer were successfully executed. Thanks to the leadership of APA President Catherine Wood (Dana ’15), parent volunteers helped to raise a total of $503,000 for Archer through The Archer Affair, Raise Your Paddle, the Book Fair, and other fundraising efforts. Thank you, parents, for getting involved and making a difference at Archer.

On April 25, the Archer community came together to salute Broadway at The Archer Affair held at the beautiful Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. Raising a record $452,000, Archer would like to thank and congratulate our center stage stars, Event Chairs Debby Hopper and Geoffrey Evans, and their cast of committed and hard-working volunteers for creating another successful and amazing night for Archer. Thank you to all who attended the event and supported The Archer Affair. Special thanks go to the following generous event sponsors:

A Culture of Giving

The Archer School for Girls is the dynamic and inclusive school that it is today thanks to the vision, active involvement and generosity of the Archer Community. Since the School’s founding in 1995, Archer has relied on the financial support and volunteerism of our community to develop our groundbreaking programs. We are very grateful for this partnership and the generosity of our parents, grandparents, alumnae parents, alumnae, Trustees, faculty and staff, foundations and corporations, and friends.

The Archer Fund

A gift to the Archer Fund is a direct investment in the Archer experience and goes to work immediately to benefit our students. Your meaningful gift may be directed to our ambitious academic programs, our enriching cocurricular opportunities, professional development for our faculty and staff, or to Archer’s enduring commitment to financial aid.

Major Gifts

Major Gifts secure the educational, physical and financial future of Archer and are directed to select key initiatives of the School, including financial aid, STEM, our NOLS program, The Eastern Star Gallery, and our current capital campaign efforts. This investment in Archer, separate from and in addition to the Archer Fund, helps Archer fulfill its mission to educate girls in the ways they learn best.

The Archer Parent Association (APA)

The APA raises funds for the School through volunteer-managed events and activities held throughout the year. As an Archer parent, you are automatically a member of the APA. The APA’s signature event, The Archer Affair, is the School’s annual dinner and auction. Funds raised from this evening go directly to the School. The Raise Your Paddle live auction item at the event supports Archer’s Financial Aid Program. Our Archer Party Book Plus is a series of parties and events hosted for parents and by parents. Ticket sale proceeds to events ranging from dinners to hiking and educational events benefit the School.
