Rectory School Learning Center

Rectory School Learning Center

After years of planning and an aggressive 12-month construction schedule, the new Rectory School Learning Center opened its doors this spring.  The new building provides Rectory with much needed educational space and includes an elementary school on the first floor and a second-floor tutoring center.  Both levels of the building are connected to the existing J.B. Academic Building, providing students with a seamless transition between educational spaces.  Elementary school classrooms and tutoring rooms were previously scattered across campus making coordination between grades and teachers less than ideal.  The new Learning Center consolidates these functions and provides Rectory with a state of the art educational environment. 

The design of the building takes its cue from a classic schoolhouse with its main gable roof and large center cupola but with a more contemporary overall style. The building forms and details were kept simple and familiar for the younger elementary school students and to remain in keeping with Rectory’s traditional New England style campus architecture. The abundance of windows and open floor plans on both levels provide a bright, natural light filled environment.
