Outdoor Pavilions

We are excited to announce the groundbreaking ceremony for our new Outdoor Learning Pavilions! Thanks to the generosity of our community and the support of our donors, we are finally able to fulfill our vision of creating outdoor learning spaces that integrate with our nature-based learning model and allow us to be good stewards of our campus.

The groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 16th at 4:00 PM at the Chance School Field, located at 4301 Lime Kiln Lane, Lou, KY. We invite you to witness this momentous occasion and celebrate with us as we take this significant step forward in our mission to help children appreciate and care for nature by spending time outdoors.

The new pavilions, which will replace the current tents and portapotties on our campus, will be named after our Signature Donors: The Fourevergreen Family Foundation, the Houston Family Foundation, and the Trager Family Foundation. We have also received Anchor Gifts from the Mueller Family Foundation and the Paradis Family Foundation.

We are still accepting donations to enhance the pavilions (think lighting, outdoor fans, etc..). By clicking here, you can contribute any amount to support the enhancements of these pavilions. Additionally, for any donation of $2,500 or more, you can add a named paver to our pavilion pathway.

We are honored to have the opportunity to fulfill our mission by providing our students, summer campers, and school community with safe and beautiful outdoor spaces. We invite you to be part of this legacy project by supporting our Pavilion fund-a-need efforts. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to Chance School.
