A Message from the Board of Trustees

To the PCDS Community:

The Board of Trustees at Phoenix Country Day School is excited and honored to support the THRIVE Campaign. We believe such an endeavor is vital to the success of our school, now and in the future. THRIVE will raise PCDS to the next level and turn an institution we hold close to our hearts into a nationally recognized beacon of excellence. As leaders of the School, we fully recognize the importance of philanthropy in this process. That is why the Board of Trustees put 100% of our support behind this important effort to get the campaign off the ground and headed for success. We couldn’t be more pleased with the first phase of the campaign — the dazzling new Aquatic & Tennis Center — and we view it as proof of the transformative power of philanthropy.

But we have only just begun. It is our duty to take care of some long overdue projects, and to do so we need the participation of our entire community – students, faculty and staff, alumni, parents, past parents and friends alike. This campaign is about more than just new buildings and facilities—it’s about community and excellence across our campus. I invite your questions and thoughts. Onward!
