The Studio School

Annual Gala & Auction

STUDIO’S JUBILEE! On Thursday, April 7th, our community came together for the first time in 2 years! The beautiful venue, Current at Chelsea Piers, was filled with the joyful buzz of parents, teachers, alumni, and friends of the school reuniting.

It was a spectacular gala from beginning to end, featuring a lively evening of socializing, dining, tributes, Class of 2022 performance, bidding, and whole-hearted festivities in celebration of our 50th Anniversary. As we reflect on the past 50 years, we look forward to the next 50!

From our Gala Co-Chairs:
“Sharing this momentous evening with our community was truly an honor. As we celebrated together, it was moving to reflect on the many extraordinary presents The Studio School has given us and its students; among them the gift of education, the gift of a love of learning, and the gift of cultivating meaningful connections with oneself and with others.”

The Present

The Studio School’s Approach to learning embraces the experience of being in the moment and what that moment presents to teach us. It is the synergy, the back and forth together, that creates the energy and motivation for us each to grow into the person we are meant to be, empowering us individually and collectively. The beauty of this process is replete with wonder, ideas, creativity, surprise, disappointment, curiosity, delight, boredom, confusion, frustration, determination, and more. As educators, we look for particular moments when the opportunity for growth and transformation is ripe for each child, knowing how to present and guide their next step. This is what we mean by an education from the inside out. Even after all these years, there is still something so magical in witnessing the unfolding of the mind.  —Janet C. Rotter

Paddle Moment

There’s still time to raise your paddle to support Studio’s 50th Anniversary!

A generous $50,000 match, offered at the gala, has been extended to the entire Studio School for the month of April. We need to raise another $15,000 to make sure every dollar is matched 1:1. Can you help us reach this goal by raising your virtual paddle today? Every dollar donated will be matched. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
