STAN Talks 2020

  • STAN Talks cancelled

    We have made the tough decision that we will cancel STAN Talks5 scheduled for this Thursday, March 12. The Stanley Alumni Committee wishes to be respectful of the health of all members of our community – and that includes doing our part to slow the potential spread of coronavirus/COVID-19.  

    We are so grateful to our speakers, and we look forward to having this team back in March of 2021, and to officially celebrating our Sprit of Stanley award winner, Donna Meallet at that time.

  • Stanley Community Support Fund

    The Stanley BPS Community Support Fund was established in April 2020 to provide tuition assistance to families with increased financial need due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are delighted to announce that the Wege Foundation and the Goodwillie family have pledged their support by offering a matching grant: All contributions to the fund will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000. 

    If you are interested in making a contribution to the Community Support Fund, you may do so securely at or by contacting the Office of Community Engagement at

    The people in the Stanley community are the heart and soul of our school. Thank you for making a gift to support our families.   

  • Each year, three Stanley alum present TED-Talk-like presentations for parents, alumni and alumni families in STAN Talks. In 10-minute presentations, our featured alum tell us about what they are doing in the world, and how their experience at Stanley informed some of the choices they have made. Each STAN Talk is followed by the Stanley Alumni Association's presentation of the Spirit of Stanley Award - voted on by the community as someone who has dedicated themselves to upholding Stanley values and teaching philosophy.
