SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School has officially kicked off its “Our Time” capital campaign with a goal to raise $32.5 million and transform its campus with new, dynamic learning spaces.
The plans include constructing a new 60,000 square for Upper School humanities building which will house the English, World Language, Religion, History, Global Education and College Counseling departments with collaborative learning and social spaces for students and faculty. This innovative building will overlook a large greenspace and central courtyard, strengthening the campus’ feeling of community.
A new 40,000 square foot Lower School building will replace a 1970s facility with a new space filled with natural light, high-tech classrooms, hands-on learning spaces and flexible common areas including a green space and play area.
The Our Time capital campaign also includes the addition of a cross country course around the perimeter of the campus and improved traffic flow and security.
“The Our Time campaign is a transformational campaign for Holy Innocents’,” Head of School Paul Barton said. “It gives us the ability to amplify our sense of community. We’re celebrating 60 years of excellence in Episcopal education and this is a milestone for us.”
The school plans to break ground on the Upper School humanities building in May 2020 and open the new building for the 2021-2022 school year. The Lower School building is planned to open in fall 2022.
“Holy Innocents’ is building more than a new campus,” said Neil Pruitt, capital campaign chair, board member and parent of three Holy Innocents’ students. “It is building a community of citizens for tomorrow who are well-rounded and prepared for whatever the future holds. The Master Plan envisions an environment that reflects the quality of our programming and the caliber of our students, while laying the foundation for our long-term vision.”
A kickoff event was held on Jan. 23 at the Atlanta History Center, where guests enjoyed viewing renderings of the new buildings and learning about the school’s exciting path forward.
