Amp up the Amphitheater!

The Amphitheater is the heart of the Randolph School! Help us revitalize and preserve our outdoor classroom for generations to come.

A fundraising campaign for The Randolph School

Not All Classrooms Have 4 Walls

Join us in rebuilding Randolph’s hands-on learning and meeting place

The Randolph amphitheater is an all-season hub for classes, performances, and traditional events. We gather here to make fires, examine specimens, perform plays, share stories, and sing together. In the amphitheater, we give thanks at our annual Harvest Feast, turn sap into syrup, and celebrate the beginning and end of the school year. Summer campers paint and play here. During library and art classes, children spill out of The Studios to sketch, write, and read on the amphitheater’s locally-sourced fieldstone steps. 

Randolph’s amphitheater is more than a beautiful feature of our campus—it is an outdoor classroom, performance venue, and all-school gathering space.

We need a strong, stable, and safe amphitheater for our children, teachers, parents, and community. Join us as responsible stewards of The Randolph School campus and help us preserve the magic for generations to come. 

This year, 100% of your annual fund gift goes to our amphitheater rebuilding campaign. 

Did you know?

Before it was an amphitheater, this space was a pond! In 2000, Eric Tomlins and local environmental artist Skip Schuckmann saw the need for Randolph’s first outdoor meeting space. Older Randolph students drafted the plans and moved all the stones. 

You can get this rebuild started!

Twenty years of use and weather have eroded our amphitheater. Some portions are unusable. It’s time to strengthen and rebuild. Randolph students are sketching and measuring the project. A local mason is standing by. All that’s missing is your support.

About the Organization

A genuine philosophy of education is essentially a philosophy of life; living and learning are interdependent conditions.

Since human beings learn through exploration, interpretation of, and reaction to their world, then an appropriate educational approach encourages fearless exploration, challenge and exchange of ideas.

Children who are expected to participate in a democratic society must be educated in schools that allow the greater possible experience in making rational choices among a variety of alternatives, that also allow the widest possible experience in free interaction with others and in following their own lines of inquiry or investigation.

This will not be a silent school. A school where children are learning is a place full of the sound of laughter, of tears, of gaiety, of anger…the sound of children communicating…the sound of life…the sound of growing.

— The Randolph School Story, 1963
