"I think the Excellence Fund is a great opportunity for students to strive for and achieve their out-of-the-ordinary goals with the help of their school. The Fund also gives applicants a view into the world of grant-writing, an education in and of itself."
- Henry, ASP student
"Discovery, innovation, wonder, exploration, opportunity… My mind fills with all these words when I think of the Excellence Fund. And immediacy. I love that the time between wanting to get something done and doing it gets shorter and shorter thanks to this Fund."
- Chris Chater, Lower School Music
"I’m proud of ASP for developing something that allows us to constantly innovate and enhance our teaching at ASP. I’m happy to say I’m a donor and I’m thankful to all the parents who support me and our students by giving to the Excellence Fund!"
- Chris Friendly, Upper School Faculty
"I love that the Excellence Fund is such a grassroots effort. It goes directly into the classroom instead of getting lost in a big fund. And having personally benefited from my SMART board, I see how it makes an impact on a daily basis!"
- Mario Chioni, Upper School Librarian
"We support ASP as alumni because it has influenced who we are and how we view the world. We want to help ensure that ASP has the resources to continue to shape the lives of its students through both academic and experiential learning opportunities."
- Rory & Liz Doyle, Alumni (Class of '00) & ASP sweethearts
