New Developments at Buckley

During Phase III of our Campus Enhancement Plan (CEP), Buckley will construct The Center for Community and the Arts, a flexible, multipurpose gathering place that will accommodate assemblies, division meetings, Performing Arts productions, concerts, and collaborations. We will also refurbish the existing Administration Building, converting it to a modern library designed to serve Middle and Upper School students and make other renovations.

When these projects are complete, the Disney Pavilion, currently used as our gymnasium and auditorium, will be fully dedicated to physical education and athletic activities and events. Our campus will include more new classrooms, a world languages lab, refreshed outdoor spaces, and updated administrative offices. These enhancements position Buckley to deliver on our mission, well into the future.
