Sixth Form Gift

In 1991, Salisbury parents began a tradition whereby parents of the Sixth Form honored their sons and expressed thanks to the School for its role their sons' development. Since then, more than $13 million has been added to the permanent endowment and facilities. Projects have focused on student financial aid, faculty development, faculty housing, technology, athletic and classroom facilities.

Parent leaders spearhead the effort to invite all sixth form families to participate. The gift is then presented to the School at graduation. Please click here to make your gift today!

To honor the Class of 2018, this year’s Sixth Form Gift will be the renovation of our student center, Belin Lodge. Identified in the School’s Strategic Operating Plan as a top priority, the redesign of Belin Lodge is an inviting project, one for which the boys have been yearning. The need for this upgrade begins with the effort to best serve a growing student population. We are currently a student population of 312, while the existing facility was designed in the early 1970s to accommodate 200 students. 

In addition, we are committed to improving the social and campus life experience for our boys and to inspire healthy living. The thoughtful renovation of Belin Lodge will provide an exciting and luxurious space to gather together in moments of free time outside of the dormitory and to enjoy casual conversation, watch a football game, or enjoy a quick snack between school commitments, enriching the brotherhood experience that is one of the School’s most celebrated aspects. 

Key features of the plan include the following: 

  • Connecting and opening the main floor of the facility to the lower level to increase the capacity of the facility and improve its functionality. 
  • Expanding the kitchen space to better serve the boys who use the Snack Bar. 
  • Adding recreational opportunities and gathering spaces to encourage social interaction between the boys including a climbing wall, an outdoor fireplace and TV on a deck, a fire pit, and a slide connecting the upper and lower floors. 
  • Integrating current technology to match the needs of the boys. 
  • The current expectation is that the cost of implementing the preliminary plans will be in the range of $2.5 million.
