Phase V

Phase I - Completed

We negotiated with Crossbridge Church to swap land parcels for the improvement of our Upper School Campus’ footprint and parking, while increasing our usable space to ultimately allow for our Upper School students to unify on one campus.

Cost: $14 Million

Phase II - Completed

In March 2021, we broke ground on a new 60,000 square foot, $40 million Center for Student Life at the Marian C. Krutulis PK-8 Campus. On October 8, 2022, we celebrated the opening of this transformative building. The Center for Student Life enhances the student experience, renews our campus, and ensures Gulliver continues to thrive long into the future.

We also completed additional infrastructure improvements, including renovations to the PK-8 Campus, and work on the Kendall Loop and other roadways around the Upper School Campus, as well as improved traffic flow, increased parking, and a new entrance. With the completion of the Tennis Complex at the PK-8 Campus, Phase II is now complete.

Cost: $54 Million

Phase III - In Progress, Expected Completion May 2024

On March 2, 2024, we opened the first building in Phase III – our new Academic Building at the Upper School Campus. This 21,500 square foot facility is now home to many of our Signature Academic Programs, including Digital Mass Media, Engineering, International Business & Entrepreneurship, International Diplomacy & Legal Studies, and Architecture. These new classrooms will allow us to have all of our Upper School students and programs on one campus beginning in the 2024-25 school year.

The Academic Building also features a teacher planning space, several common areas for fostering community and collaboration, and cloud spaces for flexible teaching and learning. The facility sits next to the newly renovated Sean Taylor ’01 Memorial Field and enlarged softball field, both of which have opened in the past year. Enhancing the overall experience at our athletic events, the Academic Building includes a press box, concession stand, and increased spectator seating with 4,600 square feet of covered bleachers.

The remainder of Phase III will continue to improve our athletic facilities with the addition of a new Athletic Center featuring an indoor track, gymnasium, weight room, and locker rooms. Finally, the addition of a parking garage will enhance on-campus parking options, as well as give our Executive Offices a new home on campus.

Cost: $40 Million

Phase IV - Pending Fundraising

The focus of Phase IV is our new Performing Arts Center, designed to support our music, dance, and theatre programs with practice and rehearsal spaces and the best lighting, sound, and production capabilities. At Gulliver, we believe that the arts are a pathway to confidence, communication, and a strong sense of self, pillars that mirror our core values.

This new Performing Arts Center will benefit all Gulliver students and further strengthen and unite our community with exceptional spaces.

Cost: $52 Million

Phase V

Implementing Phase V allows Gulliver to successfully conclude our master plan with our campus and community fully transformed. This final phase focuses on developing flexible classrooms that work for larger projects and adapt for small group work, improving event and common spaces both indoors and outdoors, and building an upgraded dining facility and community gathering space – the final step in our Upper School Campus unification plan.

Cost: $10 Million

Transformation. Together. 2026.

Gulliver’s campaign will build on our mission and commitment to excellence by providing facilities that position Gulliver as a global leader in independent school education. Our community, in leading this campaign, will play a vital role by ensuring our exceptional students and faculty have access to unparalleled, world-class educational opportunities for generations to come.

Grounded by Our Mission

Founded in 1926 by Arthur Gulliver and transformed under the visionary leadership of Marian C. Krutulis in the second half of the 20th century, Gulliver Preparatory School has been a leading school of distinction for nearly 100 years. 

Today, we remain steadfast to the mission first set by Mrs. Krutulis: to create an academic community devoted to educational excellence, with a personal touch, that fulfills each student’s potential. We advance her vision to ensure Gulliver thrives well into the future – a future she secured by incorporating the school as a nonprofit institution over 20 years ago – by embracing change as a vehicle for growth.
