Class of 2020
Endowment

As you contemplate your student’s time at Nueva coming to a close, we offer you the opportunity to join us in thanking the dedicated teachers who have had such a profound impact on your student.

We will present Nueva's teachers with the Class of 2020 Endowment for Professional Development as a token of our appreciation. This will be the first endowed fund ever created by parents of graduating seniors — and, we hope, a tradition that will be followed by every future graduating class.

The heart of a great school rests in its faculty. Attracting and retaining world-class educators is a key priority for Nueva, and professional development is an important way that we honor and support our teachers for the work they do every day. By expanding their access to growth opportunities, we recognize them as lifelong learners right beside our students.

As you contemplate your student’s time at Nueva coming to a close, we would like to offer you the opportunity to join us in saying thank you to the dedicated teachers who have had such a profound impact on your soon-to-be Nueva graduate. 

Our goal is to present Nueva’s teachers with the Class of 2020 Endowment for Faculty Professional Development as a token of our appreciation. This will be the first endowed fund ever created by parents of graduating seniors — and, we hope, a tradition that will be followed by every future graduating class.

While state-of-the art facilities are important for our program, the heart of a great school rests in its faculty. Attracting and retaining world-class educators is a key priority for Nueva. We seek to create an endowed fund that will support faculty professional development, giving teachers more time over the summer — with pay — to develop innovative new programs and curricula to benefit our students. This endowment will also cultivate programs and institutes that benefit our teachers and provide grants for research and development.

What better way to say thank you to Nueva’s talented, committed faculty than to make an investment in their education and growth? I hope you will join us.
