"Transforming Our Future" Campaign
The Morristown-Beard School community has much to be proud of! Thanks to the generosity of many, our School's historic comprehensive campaign, Transforming Our Future, is in full swing.
To date, this community-wide effort has fully funded the construction of the stunning $12.6 million Math & Science Center that opened last fall. 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—positions 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 to date. We invite you to read about our campaign progress and some exciting new initiatives that will propel Morristown-Beard School to the forefront of independent school education.
Math & Science Center
Last September, 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
Wilkie Hall is now home to an extraordinary new teaching tool – Science on a Sphere.
Simon Athletic Center and Rooke Pool
Progress on other capital projects included significant renovations and improvements to the Simon Athletic Center and Rooke Pool.
Center for Innovation & Design
Fundraising for the construction of a Center for Innovation & Design (CID) is now underway. Connected to the Math & Science Center, the $2 million center will provide more than 8,000 square feet of flexible and innovative space where students will design, build, and problem solve as they engage in multidisciplinary projects.
The Morristown-Beard Fund
Record breaking support toward the Morristown-Beard Fund this past year exceeded $1 million for the seventh year in a row hitting an all-time record!
- $5 MILLION: The Morristown-Beard Fund

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!
