The Cathedral School Campaign






The Terrace Level is the home to the new Library and Media Center and Innovation Lab, as well as the existing Upper and Lower School science labs. The Expansion makes the Terrace Level the nucleus of our dynamic academic programs, and provides a welcoming kindergarten drop-off area, including a chance for little ones to see their future through glass-walled hallways.

Our library will always have books. But there will also be nooks where kids can study, or meet together for collaborative projects. It will be flexible, open, light. This space is rooted in literacy and research. You need those to be able to be innovative.
— Marsha Nelson, Head of School

New Library and Media Center






Focus on Exploration

New on the
Terrace Level

  • 2,700 additional square feet for instruction, collaboration, and exploration in the Library and Media Center.

  • A glass-walled breakout space in the center that lets us showcase work in progress or collaborate in small groups without disturbing other students.

  • A state-of-the-art Innovation Lab, which is a combined science lab, technology space, engineering workshop, and digital art studio. This space is designed to encourage open observation by school visitors.

  • A patio for outdoor gathering and space for a garden.

  • A handicapped-accessible south entrance with elevator access.

  • Kindergarten-friendly drop-off and pick-up area.

  • A new faculty workroom.
