Donate to Buxton
Buxton is special because of our students, faculty and supporters. Like a three-legged stool, we depend on each group to make us not just function – but to make us great. As a supporter, there are a number of ways for you to help us continue to empower and nurture our community. Please note that all gifts can be made in honor of a special individual.

Other Ways to Give
Buxton depends on our community to help spread the word about our community. There are a few ways you can help us discover wonderful new families – and help them discover us!
Buxton Ambassador – As an ambassador, you work closely with the Admissions Office to talk with prospective students and their families about Buxton. This one-on-one interaction can make an enormous difference in students’ experiences applying to and attending boarding school, and is a perfect way to help us broaden our reach.
Buxton Host – As a host, you also work with our Admissions Office to organize and put on group informational meetings for prospective students and their families. We provide our hosts with ‘best practices’ about student recruitment – and support along the path – to ensure that everyone has a great experience.
Parent Representative – After a student has enrolled at Buxton, we like to connect current parents with new parents to welcome them and respond to concerns and questions. These lasting relationships serve to shore up our community and have proven to be invaluable to all involved.
We also have opportunities for you to help us with reunions, admission events and regional alumni gatherings. And, of course, we are open to any suggestions you might have! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to start the conversation.
"Buxton has given me the freedom to be the person I want to be, make the art I want to make, and learn the things I want to learn. At Buxton we learn not only in the classroom, but in the community. We learn how to be good to each other and how to support each other. Buxton has so much to offer students, both inside the classroom and outside of it."
“At Buxton you get to focus on what you want to be learning; whether it is social skills or in-depth studying- you learn to take responsibility of your education.”
“Living your education means to not only learn things, but to use what you learn in your everyday life.”
“To me, living your education means to be independent, to take charge, to not be afraid of asking for help, to learn from your peers, to love to learn, to take what you have learned from a loving environment and take it into the world.”
“Your education is more than just your time in class, it’s your life as a whole. Learning is not limited to a teacher teaching you something in a classroom.”
“To me, at Buxton, it’s not boundaries that you make, but the ones you break through.”
“At Buxton, I can choose what I want to do with my education. I can design my own path and invest my time studying topics that I’m really interested in.”
“At Buxton you can experience your intellectual development in a community that accepts your perspective of the world.”
“I felt instantly at home when I stepped on the campus. At Buxton, we are in school 24/7. We learn things in the classroom, but we really learn valuable things outside of the classroom. We learn how to work with others and respect each other’s spaces. Our education surrounds us and we learn new things everyday.”
“I chose Buxton over public school because I think I function better in a smaller environment. You’re able to get to know students and faculty on a deeper level, which is rare.”
