As a result of the school's strategic plan, Winston's Capital Campaign, the Let's Soar! Campaign for Winston, was launched in 2013. Since then, the project has gained incredible support throughout the community.
This multi-purpose facility will include a Dining & Assembly Hall, art spaces, an extended day center, a workshop, an expanded media lab, and more!
04/03/20 Despite the current situation related to the COVID-19 outbreak, construction on Winston's new facility is continuing! Every day, we see new, exciting updates to the building. Just this week, the construction crew began placing the exterior brick on the walls. Additionally, our teachers and administrators will be working in the coming weeks to make final decisions on the furniture we will need in the new rooms. It has been an amazing experience to see this facility take shape before our eyes.
In light of the current pandemic, we do not know what these next few weeks will bring in terms of the school schedule. However, our hard-working construction crew plans to continue working on the new facility to keep us on schedule for the building's doors to open over Summer 2020.
01/10/20 As we enter the new year, we are excited to see the progress on Winston's new facility! When we returned from Winter Break, we were excited to see all of the new updates that were made to the building. In mid-December, the facility was a skeleton; when we returned from break, we were amazed to see the walls coming up! We appreciate all of the hard work of Keller-Martin Construction, the construction crew, our faculty and administration, and of course our generous donors who have made our students' dreams a reality.
08/01/19 Construction is underway! Over summer break, Winston was transformed into a full-fledged construction site. General contracting company Keller-Martin has done a great job of making sure we reach our goal of getting our facility constructed in a timely manner. We are grateful to their employees, and to all of our supporters who have made this project possible!
03/11/19 Join us for a groundbreaking ceremony! On Friday, March 29, 2019 at 8:15am, Winston will hold a short groundbreaking ceremony on our campus. Please mark your calendars to join us for this special, exciting event.
Students, parents, and friends of the school are all invited to come out to celebrate this occasion and to hear comments from Headmaster Dr. Charles J. Karulak and campaign leadership.

10/12/18 Mr. Harvey E. Najim has announced that he will support the Campaign for Winston through a generous gift of $550,000. This gift comes at an amazing time for the school--because of his timely generosity, Winston is able to secure two conditional grants from foundations that totaled $1 million. Which means that Mr. Najim's gift actually allows us to secure $1,550,000! Because of this gift, we will be able to break ground within the next few months!
09/20/18 To ensure that we reach our goal as soon as possible, and to show our committment to all donors, each member of the Winston Board of Trustees is considering increasing their commitments to the Campaign. It is essential that we reach our goal by December 5, 2018 to secure our conditional foundation grants! Many board members have already made their additional committments, including one member who pledged an amazing additional $250,000!
01/08/18 The Winston School San Antonio has received a generous conditional gift of $500,000 from a foundation in Tulsa, Oklahoma! In order to secure this conditional gift, Winston must reach our fundraising goal within one year. We are so excited to have this foundation associated with the Let's Soar! Campaign for Winston.
06/10/17 Every day, we get closer to reaching our goal and breaking ground of Winston's new facility! Today, a foundation based out of San Antonio, TX, has awarded the Winston School San Antonio with a $500,000 conditional grant! Before this foundation makes the gift, Winston will need to reach our fundraising goal. We have a deadline of December 5, 2018 to raise the balance of our goal. We know that this is possible with the support of Winston's amazing community!
12/16/16 We are one step closer to making Winston's new facility a reality!
