The Church Farm School — an independent boarding and day school for boys in grades 9-12 in Exton — has received a grant of $65,000 from The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust for the refurbishment of its kitchen and dining center, part of the school’s $15 million Campus Modernization Project.
Renovations include a new HVAC system, new doors and windows, the addition of a kitchen office and storage, plus a new dining terrace.
The renovated dining center will be large enough for all students to share meals at one time. There will also be space for small dinners for students and guests — for example, during the popular “Meet and Eat” evenings in which groups of students gather to discuss career paths with professionals from the surrounding community.
“This grant will enhance our school’s ability to create warm family dinners for our student body and to host outsiders in a flexible and pleasing environment,” said The Rev. Edmund K. Sherrill, CFS’s Head of School. “The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust has long been a great friend, helping particularly with enhancements to the school’s residential program.”
The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust is a private foundation established by William Wikoff Smith in 1977 to make grants in the Greater Philadelphia region to support basic needs, higher education scholarships, maritime education, and medical research.
