A Message from President Evans
After multiple years spent carefully creating a campus plan that will serve Wildcats now and in the future, construction on our initial projects is well under way. The hum of construction is at once a focus and a mere backdrop. Center stage, however, remains occupied by the students and faculty who remind us why we began all of this planning years ago. I invite you to explore our campus plans and construction progress on these webpages.
We are grateful each day for a campus that feels like home, but we are also all too familiar with the obstacles it creates in achieving the collaborative learning environment that we know our students need and our teachers are eager to embrace. As such, the strategic plan approved by our Board of Trustees in May 2012, For College and for Life, plainly calls for spaces that are catalysts for the kind of innovative, collaborative work our students and faculty are embracing.
Our campus is a living resource and evidence of the generosity of past generations. Our faithful stewardship will ensure this campus serves current and future Wildcats as effectively as it has those of past generations. The journey is shaping us in dynamic new ways—I look forward to celebrating the impact of these exciting changes with you!
Keith Evans, President
Our Campus Plan
Evolving Spaces to Embrace Our Future.
To continue fulfilling the promise of our mission, our campus must be a teacher, an enabler, and a catalyst. With building projects already under way, our multi-year planning process has now come into reality. The renovation of Campbell Hall, the construction of a new Upper School academic building, the creation of a community plaza near Alfred E. Thompson Stadium, and the construction of Barge Commons, our new "front door," are projects that will catapult our campus into the future—a future our students and teachers are ready to welcome.
"Our faculty have been looking at what these spaces are going to allow us to do both in the near future and 10 years from now. A campus designed for connection, community, and leadership will provide endless opportunities for our students. "
Head of Upper School Cindy Trask
