Annual Report 2021-2022

The Bentley Promise

To pursue academic excellence from Kindergarten
to the threshold of college,

To cherish potential and, even more, fulfill it;

To explore the arts, to love the sciences,
and embrace curiosity of all kinds;
To teach us all how to think, but not what to think;

To feel the balance of mind and body
that comes from companionship on the field of play;
To lead when the time is to lead,

And learn critical thinking that makes for good, reasoned choices;

To celebrate diversity in thought and deed,

And be a citizen of the world in all the best senses;

To expect a lot of yourself,

But care and cooperate for the good of all;

In sum, to feel the enthusiasm and fun

That make learning a lifetime pursuit —

These are the goals of Bentley School,

and the community inside and around it.



Dear Bentley Community,


It is with gratitude for each of you that I share the news of another successful philanthropic year at Bentley through support of the 2021-22 Annual Fund and the Senior Class Gift for Faculty Development. This was a remarkable effort by the entire Bentley community as we shifted back to in-person learning and began resuming the events we so greatly missed. The strength of an independent school is often measured by its philanthropic support, and last year’s success is an illustration of your selfless spirit and dedication to Bentley’s students and the faculty and staff who care for them. In total, over $740,000 was donated during the 2021-22 school year, supporting our people, places, and programs. We are grateful to each and every one of you for your ongoing and generous support.


In addition to supporting the professional growth of our faculty, staff, and administration,

the 2021-22 Annual Fund allowed for a number of critical enhancements to our campuses, including the addition of a new deck on the Hiller campus, as well as HVAC installation schoolwide. The support of our parent population allows Bentley to maintain the standard of excellence in teaching and learning that it has enjoyed for over a century.


As I begin my first year as Head of School, I’m honored to lead a community that has consistently shown its support year after year. Our desire to elevate philanthropy at Bentley has only grown because of that support. As we look ahead to the next 100 years, there is very little we cannot accomplish when we partner together.

Bentley prides itself on having a faculty that embodies the school’s motto, Scire Desidero: I Desire to Know. Throughout our distinctive 100+ year history, the School has ensured a host of scholarly opportunities for educators and administrators to maintain their professional edge and enhance the entire community; goals central to the school’s mission and continual development. Ongoing professional development allows teachers and administrators to generate new methods of instruction, collaborate with other leaders in their fields, and bring those tools back to campus. Thanks to the generosity of our community, in 2021-22, faculty were able to attend conferences and enrichment experiences in the following areas: 


  • Independent School Management Conference: Transforming Academic Leadership


  • CA State Athletic Directors Association Meeting 


  • Fertile Ground: National Conference on Education for the Ceramic Arts

  • Colored Clay Using Mason Stains  

  • Intro to Handbuilt Vases & Ikebana-inspired Floral Design with Found Floral 

  • Letterpress Workshop


  • American Association of Teachers of French Conference


  • Independent School Management Conference: Chairing Your Department - The First Five Years

  • Exeter Humanities Institute West

  • California Teacher Development Collaborative: Department Chairs Institute 

  • California Teacher Development Collaborative: Teaching Foundations

  • ORIAS Summer Institute for Teachers (UC Berkeley program)

  • National Endowment for the Humanities: Professional Development Programs

  • Learning and the Brain: Summer Institutes


  • Deans Roundtable Conference


  • NEH Abolitionism and the Underground Railroad (summer)


  • California Teacher Development Collaborative: Equity as Excellence


  • Association for Independent School Admissions Professionals

  • Crow's Nest 2022


  • Western Association for College Counseling Annual Conference

  • Association of College Counselors in Independent Schools 


Gifts to the Annual Fund also help the school prioritize campus improvements, especially when reacting to unprecedented challenges. Below is a list of some of the high-level improvements made to both campuses: 


  • Installed a new restroom to support our non-binary students

  • Re-finished and restored the gym floor to its original sheen

  • Completely renovated the visual arts/ceramics room for better pedagogical flow and organization


  • Installed brand new general play turf with safety padding on the Big Green, surrounded by an upgraded and rebuilt retaining wall

  • Created additional play space on the Hiller campus by removing hedges on the Oval and replacing them with general play turf and safety padding 

  • Remodeled the outdoor student picnic areas and installed new pavers and a new wooden deck 

  • Resealed the Blacktop and added additional 4-square game areas around the Oval

  • Added HVAC units throughout the majority of campus classrooms

  • Began the process of replacing all of the Cat-5 cabling on campus with Fiber and Cat-6  cabling for improved internet access in classrooms

Dear Bentley Community,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, our sincere thanks to all of you who generously contributed to the 2021-22 Annual Fund, Senior Class Gift, and other critical fundraising areas. Your contributions over the past two years were critical to ensuring Bentley kept its community safe and maintained its level of excellence in teaching and learning during some of our most challenging times. We express deep gratitude to BPA President Reagan Brooks-Jimenez and the rest of the BPA Executive Committee for giving their time, talent, and treasure to Bentley. Their work in strengthening parent partnerships has allowed us to emerge from the pandemic excited and ready for the year ahead. We have an opportunity not only to increase annual participation but also propel Bentley forward with a more robust fundraising program than ever before.


Bentley recently concluded its annual audit, and I’m happy to share that the funds we raise continue to go back into the classroom and support our outstanding faculty with new programs, campus and facilities improvements, and a deep commitment to professional development and growth. The school remains on firm financial footing with strong operations on both campuses.


The Board of Trustees continues to support our new Head of School in evaluating Bentley’s strategic priorities, ensuring financial sustainability, and taking a long-term approach to what the next 100 years of this remarkable institution could look like. Once again, thank you for your support as we help transform the lives of every student at Bentley School.

"I support the Bentley Annual Fund because I love this school; the academic program is uniquely excellent among independent schools, and the culture nurtures balance and self-determination in our students. Most of all, I give because the students bring so much joy and intellectual curiosity into the classroom each day, and I want to give back to honor their presence and further enhance the program and mission of Bentley School."

The Senior Class Gift is a cherished Bentley tradition where the departing senior class and their families make a gift to memorialize their time at Bentley. Each donor is encouraged to make their gift in honor of a faculty or staff member who made a positive impact on their Bentley experience. All funds raised support the Endowment for Professional Development.

The 2022 Senior Class Gift Committee was led by the Foster Family (Cole '22, Sophie '20), the Starkweather family (Emile '22), the Conley / van Linder family (Lily '22, Oliver '22), and the Benavides family (Mateo '22). Thanks to their efforts and leadership, the 2022 senior class raised more than $30,000 to support faculty and staff in developing their teaching practice and enriching the Bentley student experience. We are truly grateful to our new alumni and their families for making this lasting impact on Bentley School.


From institutions like Amherst, Bowdoin, and Columbia to Tufts, University of Chicago, and Williams, the 84 members of the Class of 2022 earned 349 offers of admission to 133 colleges and universities, enrolling at 58 different institutions.

The Class of 2022 had 25 among them remain in California for college, 55 graduates go out of state, three students attend college in Canada, and 1 student take a gap year.
