Alcuin School Campus Master Plan
In 2015, the Alcuin School reimagined their campus master plan as they were looking to expand their campus and their International Baccalaureate program. The new master plan focused on creating continuity within the campus and included the design of two new buildings, the World Languages and Fine Arts Building and the West Campus Building. The World Languages and Fine Arts Building serves the campus by creating a building for all ages that is focused on the Languages and Arts. The World Language and Fine Arts Building houses eight language classrooms, one music classroom and two art studios that open to the outdoors connecting the learning environments with the outdoors. On level two, there is an outdoor patio that overlooks the entire campus, giving the students a new perspective on the landscape and a space for students to gather.
The West Campus Building will become the home of Alcuin’s growing International Baccalaureate program and will have a 450-person auditorium for all of campus to use. The West Campus Building learning environment’s will focus on flexibility, giving the students and teachers the ability to shape the spaces within they learn. This concept will allow Alcuin to have student centered learning environments that will place emphasis on content based learning and creating the student that is the model for the global citizen.
