  • Program Enhancements

    Program Enhancements
    While big campus upgrades like the two newest buildings are paid for through major gifts, there are always smaller enhancements to be made around campus. For the past two years, program enhancement funds have been used to purchase computers, SmartBoards, lab equipment, and other resources for the new buildings. This money has also been used to purchase new software, such as that for our World Language Department.

  • Research and Development

    Research and Development 
    Research and Development is a big part of what has made Windward so great. This money allows teachers to continue their education and attend conferences to stay current on teaching methods and trends in education. It also allows teachers to research and grow new programming ideas for Windward and to develop partnerships with top universities.

  • Financial Aid

    Financial Aid
    Financial Aid allows our admissions team to create a student body with great socioeconomic diversity, a student body that is more similar to the makeup of the college classes and workplace environments in which all of these students will be expected to perform later in life. Students with different family backgrounds have different perspectives on everything, which make for more dynamic conversations both in and out of the classroom. Since 2008, financial aid recipients have maintained an average GPA of 3.7 and 100% of aid recipients have continued on to college.
