Fitness & Athletics Capital Initiative
George School is poised to make major new investments in fitness and athletics. With the best environment and tools our students can concentrate on what’s really important—testing their limits, working together for a common purpose, finding satisfaction in reaching their potential, and developing important skills that they will take into many other areas of their lives.
“At George School we have always known that athletics and physical fitness must play a central role in the lives of all our students,” said David P. Bruton ’53, former clerk of the George School Committee. “Providing the facilities to support this is an integral part of our mission as a school. We owe our students nothing less.”
In spring 2013 construction will begin on a new fitness and athletics center at the location of the original 1976 Worth Sports Center. The spectacular new brick and glass building will be a beautiful addition to our athletic facilities and enhance the school’s team sports, physical education, and fitness programs.
The cost of constructing the new fitness and athletics center is estimated at $29.5 million. The new Cougar Track and Cougar Field, an all-weather running track and synthetic turf field completed in late 2011, cost $2.5 million to build. Alumni, parents, and friends have already committed more than $21 million to make these much-needed facilities a reality. We look forward to the continued support of alumni, parents, and friends, at all levels, as we continue to raise the necessary funds to complete the project.
Plans for enhancing the equestrian program and building an indoor riding ring for year-round use are underway. Associated costs will be determined as part of this process.
Join us in making these facilities a reality. Please consider making a donation for the new fitness and athletics center. Your participation will honor all those whose dedication and hard work have made George School athletics such an important part of the history and life of our community.
