Latin School of Chicago


Planning for the school’s future, members of the Latin community envisioned ways in which the school could take advantage of Chicago’s resources.

To make this vision a reality, The Latin School determined that it would need to make capital improvements, grow its endowment, and create cutting-edge creative programming for students.

These initiatives would require $100 million in funding—more than five times the amount Latin had raised a few years earlier in the school’s first-ever comprehensive campaign.


Campbell & Company and The Latin School determined that the first step toward realizing the school’s vision would be to plan and implement a $50 million campaign, which would be among the largest in the country for an independent day school serving grades pre-kindergarten through 12.

With the firm’s guidance, the school established campaign priorities, including construction of a new, separate middle school, as well as some endowment and programmatic support.

“Campbell & Company has helped us see what’s possible. Now we’re building on the success of this effort to propel Latin into the future.”

-Shelley Greenwood, Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Latin School of Chicago

The Latin School has received over $20 million in seven-figure gifts to the successful campaign, which is in its final phase. In early 2006, the school broke ground and began construction of its new, state-of-the-art middle school, with occupancy slated for fall 2007.
