Growth / Support
Capital Projects are a whole-school response to a compelling need. They are brought to fruition by a transformative vision of what can be. If well executed, the benefits are immediate in impact, broad in reach, and generational in duration. From the very start, project success depends on the demonstrated existence of five core institutional capacities: Leadership. Administrative. Financial. Community. Giving.
KSC has completed, and is in various stages of coordinating, Capital Projects totaling $25 million in occupied and projected value.
Capital Campaigns serve to advance a school’s mission by creating an air of relational altruism: a community of giving. Such a benevolent atmosphere enables a campaign or project to extend its reach and impact well beyond the immediate objectives. Thus, Capital Campaigns are often the engines behind successful near and long-term change and the realization of a school's full potential.
With KSC’s support, schools have raised/are raising over $6.0 million to support capital projects. In addition, we helped secure over $9.0 million in construction/permanent financing.
Structurally, independent schools are often administratively lean and operationally stressed. Therefore, proper support attuned to their needs and aspirations in times of change—be it programmatic or physical expansion, strategic planning and visioning or leadership and the transitional spaces change creates—can be critical.
KSC has guided Heads of School, administrative teams, faculty and parent communities, and boards of trustees—including community-based non-profits—through times of proactive or reflective need. Through observation, interviews, and close internal analysis and assessment, all viewed through a highly experiential educational lens, KSC helps a school articulate and act upon existing tensions and goals.
