Jon and Missy Doyle P’08,’09,’19 take the Access Fund to a new level.

Financial aid is critical. It bridges the gap between tuition and what a student’s family can afford. But our financial aid packages don’t always go far enough. This is where the Access Fund — part of the school’s financial aid program, a pillar of With True Courage — comes in. 

The Access Fund enables Govs to provide the same opportunities to students who are most in need. Support for the Fund helps us pay for laptops, team gear, music lessons, educational travel, and more, ensuring an equitable, inclusive experience. 

The needs of today’s students present a growing need for the Access Fund. Jon and Missy Doyle P’08,’09,’19 are motivated by the school’s needs — and they like to solve problems. Jon Doyle is a member of the Governor’s Board of Trustees and a senior executive at Piper Sandler. He and Missy made a commitment to take the Fund to a new level, doubling the Fund for the duration of the campaign. 

Says Head of School Dr. Peter H. Quimby ’85, P’14: “The generosity of Jon and Missy has allowed so many students to fully participate in Academy life, helping us move closer to being truly equitable and inclusive.” 

Further investment in the Access Fund will help provide all our students with a Governor’s experience, in addition to a Governor’s education.

What the Access Fund Provides:
•    Travel and lodging for parents to attend Fall Family Weekend 
•    Fee for sports camp with teammates 
•    Snacks and supplies for dorm room 
•    Athletic team sweatshirt 
•    Spending money for a weekend day trip to Boston with classmates

Peter Marshall French Student Center Renovation and Expansion

Dedicated in 1978 by Robert and Trustee Emerita Shirley French P’76, GP’09 and their family in memory of their son Peter Marshall French, the building has long served as a lively hub for students to congregate, learn, and forge lifelong friendships. Yet today, we find that our community has significantly outgrown the building, calling for an extensive renovation and expansion to better meet the needs of our students.
