The Samuel E. Osbourn Society

“To increase the tuition in order to meet our financial needs is not the answer, for many families will be priced out of a Germantown Academy education. Some years ago during the Great Depression, a giving fund was organized and an appeal was sent to the alumni for aid. The response was so gratifying that tuitions were not increased and a number of you were able to remain in school to graduation.”

—Dr. Samuel Osbourn, a message to his students on giving back to the Academy (1965)

The Samuel E. Osbourn Society was established in memory of Dr. Samuel E. Osbourn, esteemed headmaster of Germantown Academy, 1915-1948. Osbourn is remembered as a master in the psychology of educating young students, encouraging and developing the best in each of them. The Osbourn Society recognizes those individuals who share Osbourn's commitment to independent school values and his vision for the future of Germantown Academy by making gifts through bequests or other estate plans.

Individuals who inform Germantown Academy of their gift planning intent are invited for membership in The Samuel E. Osbourn Society.
