See the new look at St. Francis's wellness center
The School’s urban location offers abundant opportunities for learning and exploring, but space for athletic practices and recreation has been limited, until now! Designed by local architects Luckett and Farley, and built by Buffalo Construction, these gorgeous new athletic spaces are a welcome addition to the overall St. Francis School athletic program. In addition, moving the existing weight room to this new space creates a much-needed backstage and storage area for the School’s drama program, next to its existing black box theater.
“Having a large indoor turf space for our field teams gives us a competitive advantage in athletic facilities for the first time! Given that we have an urban high school, creating athletic facilities has always been a challenge, but with this new renovation, we’re able to give our teams, and all our students, a great space in which to train, practice, and just exercise.” said Head of School Alexandra Thurstone G’80, ‘84.
This project is the next-to-final phase in a multi-year $30 million campaign to “Create an Abundant Future for St. Francis School” by providing our students with the outstanding facilities they need and deserve, as well as bolstering the School’s endowment.
