Henry Adams is part of the team that was awarded the Saint James School project for a new Fine Arts Center and athletic facility improvements. The project is set to formally kick off in Fall 2014.
The new Fine Arts Center will allow the school's Fine Arts program to continue to grow. It will feature spaces such as: a 100-seat recital hall, five small studios for private music lessons, five large studios for ensemble space, choir rehearsal room, four practice rooms, classrooms, art studio, storage, and an art gallery.
The athletic facilities improvements could potentially consist of a new 500 to 600-seat basketball arena, as well as renovations and expansions to the existing facilities on the school's campus.
Saint James School is the oldest Episcopal boarding school founded on the English model in the United States. Founded in 1842, the school originally included a preparatory school and college. In the years following the Civil War, the college was eliminated and Saint James evolved toward its present shape. The Mission of Saint James School is to prepare young men and women for academic success in college, and to challenge and inspire them to be leaders for good in the world.
