Today’s Campaign for Tomorrow’s Campus
THE FUTURE STARTS NOW
Every day at Saddle River Day School, we create an entire experience designed for students to take charge of their future.
Building an excellent education that will propel our students to success in college and beyond requires continual progress and innovation. To that end, we are launching an ambitious campaign that will help us build the campus of tomorrow.
Through the Building the Future campaign, we will create an all-encompassing, state-of-the-art campus, beginning with a new science and entrepreneurship center that can highlight each and every platform our exceptional school offers. We will also add a new turf field and increased parking. These enhancements will separate SRDS from its competitors and allow us to provide the absolute best for our students, our faculty and our community.
We hope you will join us in building an ever-brighter future for our school and our students.
“We share a great responsibility and an exciting vision. Together we will transform the campus of today to build the thinkers, leaders and innovators of tomorrow.”
Jalaj Desai, Head of School
HALL OF SCIENCE AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
We will add new 21st century spaces and learning tools to bring students unparalleled opportunities to explore, innovate and discover their passions.
“The Hall of Science and Entrepreneurship will inspire a profound curiosity for exploration and empower students with the tools and space they need to excel. This investment promises a future marked by innovation, ensuring an exceptional and enriched student experience. We are thrilled to be part of its inception.”
Kristen and Francis Walsh P’28
INVESTMENT IN ATHLETICS
We will create a campus that encourages exceptional growth in all ways.
“Investing in our athletic infrastructure will enhance our physical education curriculum and take us to a new level of competitive sports at SRDS. Extracurricular activities are an important part of how students learn, and this investment will allow us to increase our athletic offerings in all divisions.”
PJ Petrow, Director of Athletics
CAMPAIGN GOAL AND FUNDING
As of the public launch on January 18, 2024, we have raised $16 million in gifts and pledge commitments towards our $20 million goal. But we are not quite finished. We as a community must support the campaign to enable us to reach our goal.
