Building The Future
Southpointe Academy is excited to enter its first capital campaign to raise funds for the next chapter of the School — enclosing the fourth-floor terrace to create new spaces that will significantly impact student life and will shape future experiences for the School community. The fundraising for this project will seek our community to invest in the potential of our students with a goal of $1 million+. An important strategic priority for Southpointe, identified in our Strategic Plan 2015-2020, is to enhance our facilities to enhance our excellence of teaching, learning and student achievement. Responding to our community’s aspirations as identified in parent surveys, a feasibility study, and student and teacher feedback, there is a need for a dedicated area for our community. The Fourth Floor will serve as a social hub for meals and a flexible space to connect and develop relationships with peers, mentors and teachers. Over the past three years, the Board and Leadership Team have been developing plans to deliver on this promise. Announced in March 2018, this significant project will commence taking our students and their educational experiences to the next level.
In the fall of 2019, Southpointe will unveil 8,200sq ft of new and repurposed spaces including a kitchen/catering area, flexible space for dining, a Graduate Lounge, Junior and Senior School classrooms to accommodate programming including open spaces that may be tailored for future program requirements.
