From its founding, Realms has instilled a deeply felt understanding that great things can be achieved when knowledge and a passion for learning unite. The Realms tradition of teaching challenges all students to participate in their learning. We continually graduate independent-minded students who contribute to and succeed in all walks of life.

Work of this importance requires ongoing support. Gifts to Realms empower us to hire the finest teachers  and offer a range of educational advantages that give the Realms experience its unique edge. Ultimately, gifts to Realms represent not only faith in the work of the school, but also belief in our collective future—one in which our talented students and alumni/ae continue contributing to the world’s well-being.
