New Trier Educational Foundation

Opportunity, Excellence and Tradition
When people list the benefits of living on the North Shore, New Trier High School is always near the top. For over a century, the school has educated our sons and daughters and launched them into success in college and beyond. Many have returned as parents of new generations of students. But whether here on the North Shore or scattered throughout the world, they form a New Trier Family, products of, and committed to, outstanding public education.

A Public/Private Partnership
In recent years, tax cap legislation and dramatic increases in our student population have led New Trier, like many schools around the country, to reach out for private support to enrich the educational program. Through a partnership with New Trier alumni, friends, and our District neighbors, the New Trier Educational Foundation seeks to expand its funding of programs that are beyond the reach of the District 203 budget. By supplementing public funds with private philanthropy we will ensure that New Trier continues to set the standard of quality for public secondary school education.

Committed to Educational Excellence
The New Trier Educational Foundation is an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization led by a volunteer board of alumni, parents and friends. Its mission is to raise private support to ensure ongoing excellence at New Trier. The Foundation has already funded programs including adding computer algebra systems to math classes and developing new curriculum for foreign language classes. In the future, the Foundation will continue to focus on active learning and support for students as well as professional development for faculty.
