Update: The Geneva School’s 2nd Campus

The Geneva School Announces $6M Campus Expansion

The Geneva School, a K4-12 Christian classical school in Winter Park, has broke ground on its new 40-acre Casselberry campus on Seminola Boulevard. The new campus will be ready to welcome students for the start of the 2019-2020 school year this August.

The current $14M construction project is the second phase in Geneva’s overall campus expansion plan which began with a $6 million state-of-the-art athletic facility. The athletic facility which officially opened November 2016, includes soccer, track, softball field, baseball field, tennis courts, beach volleyball courts and a practice field. 

The new building will house all students in grades seven through twelve. Grammar school students (grades K4 through six) will remain at the school’s current campus in Winter Park. As enrollment grows on both campuses to 750 students, plans are in place for a third construction phase which will expand the new campus to accommodate the entire Geneva community, grades K4-through twelve, on one campus home.

“Geneva’s expansion is a game-changer for the school,” said Board Chairman John Riley. “Our current footprint in Winter Park has capped enrollment at just over 500 students for several years. It’s been frustrating to turn away potential students and their families. We are excited about the potential for growth in our student population. Our teachers are thrilled about the new resources and space. In fact, they have already been dreaming about new ways to enhance academic programming.”

The design of the middle and high school facility supports Geneva’s mission of teaching students how to think well and communicate persuasively. A capstone design element includes the da Vinci Lab which can be used for group discussion, creative collaboration, student thesis presentations, and various clubs. 

In addition to classroom and office spaces, the design includes a full-sized competition gymnasium, locker and weight rooms, multiple state-of-the art science labs and a black box theater. Another interesting feature will be a collaborative (multi-purpose) industrial space that can be used for drama set design, science experiments, large art projects, and digital photography shoots. Other adjacent spaces include an art lab with a kiln and a sound-treated music room with small practice rooms for lessons and practices. 

Since the founding of The Geneva School in 1993 the faculty, staff, administration and board members have relentlessly pursued this one mission: “Inspiring students to love beauty, think deeply, and pursue Christ’s calling.” This will not change. The entire Geneva community looks forward to implementing this mission using new spaces in new ways to engage the hearts, minds and imaginations of the students.

The Geneva School, founded in 1993, is a Christian classical preparatory day school with 515 students, grades K4 through 12. For more information, please contact Katie Deatherage, director of advancement at kideatherage@genevaschool.org.
