Holderness has enjoyed academic facilities that were fashioned two, five, and more decades ago. Yet today’s 21st-century learner needs a flexible, invigorating environment that serves as a springboard for ambition. While preserving small class sizes, highlighting relationships and maintaining the trust and security of a learning community, intellectual excellence is limitless.
We focused on multi-disciplinary exploration and reconsidered what the academic experience could look like. Our educators imagined how teaching and learning could be supported by experiential learning and adaptable spaces with modern outfitting, matching the innovations in our methods and curricula.
Teaching and learning requires new habits, flexible methods, and elevating environments. Renovations and a new facility will add 25,000+ additional square feet of technology-supported learning space to our campus, providing up-to-date wet and dry science labs, classrooms, seminar areas, and makerspace.
