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 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."

  • “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.”
