Horace Dutton Taft Legacy Society

In honor of the first head of school and founder, as well all individuals who have made some provision in their estate plans benefiting the school, the Board and Head of School established the Horace Dutton Taft Legacy Society in 2011. Horace Taft named the school as the beneficiary of his life insurance policy, the school’s first gift.
