Marlborough's Story


In conjunction with our awesome clients at Balance Chestnut Hill, we built an app for the Marlborough School in Los Angeles, CA.  After reading their mission statement below, you'll understand why we were so excited to create an engagement app centered around holistic health and wellness to help them implement their mission:


"Marlborough School, founded in 1889, is an independent, urban day school serving a diverse group of young women. The School is committed to delivering a superior college preparatory education in an environment imbued with high ethical values. Marlborough is dedicated to the philosophy that academic excellence, leadership skills, and confidence flourish best in an environment exclusively devoted to the education of young women. The Marlborough community enables each student to develop her fullest potential so that she may become an actively engaged global citizen."

Co-founders of Balance Chestnut Hill gym, Amy Carolla and Liz Harris, partner with the Marlborough School to host a bi-annual Wellness Festival that is a weekend full of immersive activities with premiere leaders in the health and wellness industry. We designed an app to launch for their second one, where students, their parents, and Marlborough faculty members could learn more, complete health and wellness challenges related to what they'd experience at the festival, and get pumped for it a couple months leading up to the festival. Activities and challenges on the Marlborough Wellness Festival app were categorized as one of Marlborough's 5 pillars of wellness: Fitness, Rest & Recovery, Meditation, Nutrition, and Wellness.

Registrants then used the app to help them navigate through all of the exciting activities the festival had to offer the weekend of; there were so many to choose from...including goat yoga. I repeat - goat. yoga. 


Registrants were divided up into teams by grade (for students), parents, and faculty and competed against each other to win a prize for the team with the highest collective amount of points by the end of the festival, which was a wellness kit they could each take home to enjoy. Additionally, they have their app as a resource full of workout and meditation videos, recipe ideas, and more to continue guiding them on their wellness journey until the next festival! 

This is one of many ways MilkCrate apps have been used to help youth, advance healthy lifestyles, and serve in an education setting. Three of many important causes we have served with the apps we have built. If you have a program or organization that needs to motivate youth, or adults for that matter to take action in important ways - let us know! We'd love to provide a free demo of how our apps work and see if we can be of help.
