Doors to Discovery Campaign

Our three campaigns cover two new buildings and additional financial aid to increase the school's economic diversity.

Doors to Discovery Campaign

Our $35 million campaign will open doors to the broadest range of possibilities today for our students to reach their fullest potential. 

This mission-driven campaign will deliver on the goals and priorities of our strategic plan by investing in projects that make the greatest use of our campus, the smartest use of our resources, and target our greatest needs as a school.   

A 21st Century Education

This campaign will help Overlake prepare students for a changing job market and world by prioritizing 21st century skills—communication, collaboration, critical thinking, active learning, creative problem solving—that will help them succeed, no matter what path they choose.

New Student & Community Center


A place to congregate, collaborate, and celebrate

A new, modern Student & Community Center is a valuable investment in the school, creating a learning environment that equips students for the future and inspires them to solve complex problems and make a difference in the world.

Endowed Financial Aid


Opening doors to a life-changing education, fostering a diverse community

By raising our endowment for financial aid from $2 million to $11 million, we will be able to increase our socioeconomic diversity, which will strengthen our commitment to accessibility and inclusivity as well as deepen classroom discussions to strengthen the teaching and learning environment for all.

New Whitten Math & Sciences Center


Unlocking the full potential of every Overlake student and teacher in math, science, computer science, and more 

We are so grateful to all our donors who are investing in our future through this transformational effort. Since the building opened in Spring 2021, it has become the popular, thriving hub on campus. New classes and sections are now offered that weren't possible before, especially in the stunning Idea Lab, and the Robotics Team now has a permanent home. It is truly an incredible facility for teaching and learning.
