At its March 26, 2012 meeting, the Academy’s Board of Trustees authorized the school to move forward with plans to renovate the Cahall Campus Center, the Richard Sawyer Athletic Center, and the Academy’s historic Main Building. Like changes that have come before them, these renovations have been carefully designed to meet a number of long-identified needs of the Thayer community.

The plans call for the:
  • Creation of a Student Commons in the Cahall Campus Center for students in grades 9-11 that will include a student gathering space, academic lockers, and a new campus store
  • Renovation of the lower level of Main Building (the Brickyard) to create a gathering space for members of the senior class
  • Relocation and expansion of the current college counseling offices by creating a new College Counseling Center adjoining the senior class gathering space on the lower level of Main
  • Establishment of a technology center that will be the focus of technological learning and experimentation for both students and faculty
  • Renovation of areas of the first floor of Main Building, including the Admission Offices and Upper School Administrative Offices
The estimated cost of these renovations is $3.1 million, and they are scheduled for completion in two phases over the summers of 2012 and 2013. To meet the costs, the Board also announced a new capital campaign to be called Building Community. Support from all members of the school community – past and present – will be needed to help reach the final goal.

If you have questions about this project, or would like to discuss your support personally, please contact Director of Development Mark Gutierrez (781-664-2501 or  mgutierrez @thayer.org).

A more detailed description of the renovation plans and architectural renderings of the new spaces can be seen in the Building Comunity Brochure at right.
