Episcopal High School

Alexandria, VA

EHS retained Bowie Gridley Architects to develop a comprehensive campus master plan as a complement to an update of their overall Strategic Plan. BGA created a master plan process that would help EHS determine how to best ensure that facilities align with the school’s mission.
  • A very inclusive approach sought direct feedback from staff, faculty, and students through questionnaires, group interviews, and collaborative workshops.
  • All aspects of the school were examined: residential, student life, academic, arts, athletics, administrative, support, and campus infrastructure.
  • A special focus of this planning process was assessment of residential facilities to determine how to best achieve ideal faculty/student ratios and more on-dorm housing for faculty families.
  • Moving and rebuilding the existing running track created an ideal site for a new campus quad with two new dormitories and a student health/wellness center.
  • Tactical interior renovations to dormitories and academic facilities were also developed to better utilize existing space.
