This community-wide effort has fully funded the construction of the stunning $12.6 million Math & Science Center that opened in the fall of 2018 along with the $2 million Center for Innovation & Design that opened in 2019. Wilkie Hall is now home to an extraordinary new teaching tool – Science on a Sphere, and the Simon Athletic Center and Rooke Pool have undergone significant improvements. Continued support of the Morristown-Beard Fund—as well as gifts to endowment and scholarship—positioned us well to reach and exceed our overall campaign goal of $20 million by 2020.

Thank you to all of you who have chosen to support this historic campaign. We invite you to read about our achievements and some exciting new initiatives that are propelling Morristown-Beard School to the forefront of independent school education.

Capital Projects

Center for Innovation & Design

Connected to the Math & Science Center, the $2 million Center for Innovation & Design provides more than 8,000 square feet of flexible and innovative space where students design, build, and problem solve as they engage in multidisciplinary projects.

In September of 2017, we kicked off the beginning of the school year with a community-wide ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of our fully-funded, $12.6 million Math & Science Center.

Science on a Sphere

Progress on other capital projects included significant renovations and improvements to the Simon Athletic Center and Rooke Pool.

The MB Fund

Record breaking support toward the MB Fund this past year exceeded $1 million for the seventh year in a row hitting an all-time record!

Transforming Our Future - $20 Million by 2020

What Was the Transforming Our Future Campaign?

The Transforming Our Future campaign was an ambitious five-year campaign to further distinguish Morristown-Beard School as an institution of excellence. The goal of the campaign–to raise $20 million by 2020–was met and the campaign truly was a success.

The MBS community clearly understands the impact physical space can have on teaching and learning. From the completion of the Math & Science Center to the renovations to the Simon Athletic Center and Rooke Pool, MBS is unwavering in its commitment to providing the very best environment for growth and success. With fundraising underway for the new Center for Innovation & Design, we continue to enhance the beauty and functionality of our 22-acre campus – made possible only with your help!
