Woodstock Academy
Woodstock, CT


Our work with Woodstock Academy began as a study where we assessed the conditions of the campus buildings and reviewed educational space needs.  As part of our process, we interviewed key faculty and administration to develop educational program statements for both 1,200 students and 800 students and to calculate educational space needs.

We are currently building on this information to complete a Master Plan to serve as a tool to guide future budgeting, capital planning and strategic decision-making.  The master planning process has been a valuable opportunity to involve a broad cross-section of the school’s stakeholders in visioning sessions and workshops.

A major piece of the Master Plan is the investigation of the science department needs.  We have held intensive programming sessions with science teachers and the department head and are now testing several addition/renovation and new construction options to house the science program.  We recently presented the option of a three-story free-standing building containing 12 science labs and associated spaces.
