From its founding in 1781, Phillips Exeter Academy has instilled a
deeply felt understanding that great things can be achieved when
knowledge and goodness unite. The Academy’s rigorous Harkness table
tradition of teaching challenges all students to think actively and
participate in their learning. Exeter continually graduates
independent-minded students who contribute to and succeed in all walks
Work of this importance requires substantial and
ongoing support. Gifts to Exeter empower us to hire the finest teachers,
build and maintain the most up-to-date facilities and offer a range of
other educational advantages that give the Exeter experience its
distinguished edge. Ultimately, gifts to Exeter represent not only faith
in the work of the Academy, but also belief in our collective
future—one in which our talented students and alumni continue
contributing to the world’s well-being.
