2018-19 Annual Report | Founders Society

“When the Solebury School opened in New Hope, Pennsylvania in the fall of 1925, it was not just another school for several reasons. No wealthy person gave money to found the school; the founders were not concerned with financial profits; nor did they believe that more schools or bigger schools were needed.” – Excerpt from a 1932 article in Progressive Education by Arthur Washburn, Solebury’s first headmaster and one of four founders.

The Founders Society is built upon the tradition of keeping the original inspiration for Solebury School alive and keeping up with the inevitable tide of modernity and the sweeping changes it brings. Their commitments have helped to ensure the continuance of the Founders’ ideals and the pursuit of excellence in education.

We honor their enduring generosity over the years which totals an investment of $100,000 or more.
