A Message from the Head & Board Chair

In the 2019-2020 school year, over 1,100 of you––Head-Royce parents, trustees, faculty and staff, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends––made a gift to Head-Royce School. And what an unusual year it was! We began last year in “normal” mode, not knowing our world was about to shift into a pandemic, economic instability, and a racial reckoning that has shaken our nation and community.

Because of you, Head-Royce has been able to forge ahead and address our challenges head on. Your collective generosity resulted in $1.76M in philanthropic support. You made a direct impact on our ability to meet increased need for financial aid, provide technology upgrades for effective distance learning, launch our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Action Plan, offer professional development for faculty to navigate the new teaching landscape, and completely retrofit the campus with COVID-19 safety protocols.

Our School is on strong financial footing as we look towards the future with hope. Our K-12 students and teachers are fully engaged in distance learning with plans for a safe and slow rollout of campus reopening. For 134 years, we have remained a beacon of academic excellence in the Bay Area and we could not do so without your support. Thank you for your investment in our teachers, our students, and the future leaders who have learned firsthand how to persevere with grit and resilience.
