Academy Learning Commons

The K – 12 Learning Commons are a reimagining of our libraries into a dynamic intellectual hub where students can find their purpose and passion, creating space for the yet unimagined.

The first phase of this undertaking, the Junior School Learning Commons (kindergarten – grade 8), has been inspiring students since it opened in 2019. The second and final phase, the Academy Learning Commons (grades 9 – 12), will structurally repurpose the School’s current Cooke Library, with projected completion in 2025.
 
The new LEED certified design reconnects grades 9 – 12 to the center of campus, creates collaborative new spaces for learning and innovation, enhances project-based learning and sparks imagination at a time when the world has been transformed by an innovation-driven economy.
