The Gift of an Education

There is no greater gift one can give a child.

Peter J. Caldwell Scholarship Endowment Fund

Established in 2021 by the Board of Trustees in honor of Peter J. Caldwell for his dedicated service and leadership as Head of School from 2011-2021, this fund supports the lofty and ambitious goal of providing an MBS education to any deserving candidate regardless of their financial means.

As the cost of education continues to increase, it is more important than ever that an MBS education be accessible to all deserving candidates regardless of their ability to pay. As lifelong educators, Darcy and I both agree there is no greater gift one can give a child—the gift of an education.


The son of boarding school teachers, Peter Caldwell has been deeply immersed in the life of an independent school community since childhood and his professional career reflects this fundamental truth: he is a life-long educator. We are extremely appreciative of Peter’s transformative leadership and his commitment and caring for our School, our students, and our community. We are immensely proud of the legacy he will leave at MBS.

John F. Fay, President, Board of Trustees P ’11, ’14, ’20
