The Building Brighter Futures Construction Project is Underway!

20161212 Lawrence project opt1

Bellesini opened its Girls’ School in September 2015.  By September 2018 our enrollment will double, requiring expansion of our current facility.  The Building Brighter Futures Construction Project will:

  • Remove the unused Rectory adjacent to the school building in order to maximize the instructional space available on the school’s property;
  • Create a dedicated “Girls’ School space,” including:
    • Four new classrooms that will be wired for future access to the Internet and library resources;
    • Girls’ community hallway connecting girls classrooms; and
    • Girls’ Cubbies Area for storing textbooks, supplies, and personal items.
  • STEAM Center (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) that will include:
    • New Science Lab
    • Technology Center that incorporates not just computers but also space for robotics and engineering
    • Art Studio that will be used during school day and also to enhance after-school programs
    • Movement Studio that will provide space for yoga, dance, and other after-school activities
  • Alumni lounge to be used as a welcoming home base for returning Bellesini alumni;
  • Two additional office spaces for development and alumni support staff;
  • New, large signage located at the high point of the building, viewable from across the city; and
  • New fencing around the playground area and parking lot.
