New Year, New Opportunities for Three Independent Schools

The Winkler Group is proud to congratulate three of our independent school clients that exceeded their capital campaign goals over the summer! The big milestones they crossed—and their hard work and dedication—will enhance their students’ educational experience. Read how these campaigns are transforming these schools:

Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, Tennessee

Transforming Stories, the largest and most forward-looking project in the school’s history, has raised over $16 million. Through the campaign, CPA will expand its footprint with a new center for the arts, a new main entrance, and a new central quad. The campus enhancements will build spaces that facilitate the transformation of young men and women through an excellent Christian education for the advancement of God’s Kingdom.

Currey Ingram Academy in Nashville, Tennessee

The It’s Possible campaign raised more than $16 million, exceeding its $15 million goal. This school is much more than its buildings. Fifty years ago, Currey Ingram Academy began providing an environment and curriculum for students with learning differences so they could reach their potential. The successful campaign will build a new boarding facility, create an endowment for faculty, and provide financial aid, so more children have the opportunity for a Currey Ingram Academy education, regardless of where they live or their socioeconomic level.

Trinity School of Durham and Chapel Hill in Durham, North Carolina

The Trinity Forward campaign raised more than $5.5 million in one school year—exceeding their first milestone goal. And they’re still raising money. Trinity School established a second milestone goal to continue the momentum of their initial success. For a quarter of a century, Trinity School has provided an innovative, Christian education led by their loving faculty. The successful campaign will enable the school to invest in its faculty members and build facilities that transform its STEM and arts programs.

In addition to these three clients, we are proud to announce the following academic institutions that launched partnerships with the Winkler Group this spring and summer: Primary Day School in Bethesda, Maryland; George Walton Academy in Monroe, Georgia; The Covenant School in Charlottesville, Virginia; St. Bernard Academy in Nashville, Tennessee; Coker College in Hartsville, South Carolina; and Brevard College in Brevard, North Carolina.

We are honored to kick off the new school year with new institutions! To see how your school can make its strategic vision a reality, contact us today.
