Judah Christian School’s new campus will provide a modern and innovative teaching environment. The building is organized around a two-story central Commons that serves as a welcoming and gathering space for students, parents, and the community. The Commons will support activities ranging from dining to chapel to collaborative study to music concerts. It connects with the outside campus through expansive glass and views out to the athletic fields and the outdoor plaza/ playground.

Through separate entries, drop-off zones, and offices, the new building will provide a distinct identity for both the Pre-K/Elementary School and the Junior/Senior High School while maintaining connectivity between grades. With classroom wings stretching to the east, the building is oriented for optimal natural daylighting. The outdoor courtyard formed by the two classroom wings provides a gathering plaza and a protected and secured play space. Future facilities are integrated into the master plan allowing for expansion of athletic facilities, performing arts spaces, special education, vocational, and standard classrooms. The classroom expansions provide for three classrooms for each grade, including Pre-K, ultimately making Judah a three-strand school. Spaces throughout the building are programmed for flexibility and opportunity for interaction and collaborative learning.

Design Goals
