Honoring Paul Singer

Over his tenure at Assets, Paul Singer has done more than some people do in a lifetime.

  • He secured the land underneath our campus so that we could actually build and expand there, rather than continue in temporary modulars that had outlived their useful life.
  • He launched the school’s first-ever capital campaign, and within a few short years, completed construction on the school’s first permanent buildings, our new K-4 Village.
  • He secured the Academy of the Pacific campus in Alewa Heights and moved our high school to that gorgeous campus, giving those students a peaceful, camp-like setting to pursue their high school education and find their path in life.
  • He oversaw a wide-ranging branding and messaging plan for Assets, creating the platform that now places Assets among the state’s most sought-after independent schools.
  • He’s been the careful steward, growing our applications and enrollment, managing our budget, improving our financial footing — always focused on one thing: making sure creative, bright children have access to the quality education they deserve.

To honor Paul's legacy at Assets, we hope you’ll join us in
supporting one of these two projects in his honor.

The Paul M. Singer Faculty Endowment ensures that Assets can attract and retain the caliber of teachers our students deserve.

Over the entirety of his career, Paul has fought to attract and retain top-notch educators — and pay them a meaningful wage — because they hold the keys to the next generation of explorers, doctors, artists and scientists. This fund has already been established with a generous $100,000 seed gift from Karen Scheid.

What better way to honor Paul’s sense of humor, his creativity, and his lifelong commitment to childhood play and the magic of learning in even the most unexpected places? 

This treehouse carries on the school’s legacy of creative and imaginative play structures that compel children to explore, wonder, create, and learn something new every day.
