ST. PETERSBURG, FL – March 24, 2014 – At this year’s State of the School Address, Head of School Mac Hall announced a new fundraising endeavor for Canterbury School of Florida, The Imagine Campaign. This $500,000 capital campaign is comprised of two projects that will bring both the Hough and Knowlton Campuses to the forefront of 21st century learning.
The Hough Campus project will include a remodel of the current library into an interactive learning center for students in PK3 through Grade 4, as well as a shade structure in the courtyard to minimize sun exposure and provide a cooler eating environment. The interactive learning center will include:
- Collaborative and flexible spacing to support the 21st century learner
- Inviting, imaginative and creative areas for research and reflection
- Newest touch technologies such as tablets, a multi-touch smart table,
creation apps and additional tactile learning resources
The Knowlton Campus project includes plans to create a new science center which will house:
- 3,219 square feet of dynamic and flexible learning environment
- Streamlined space and innovative design offering opportunities for more
sophisticated lab work
- Customized use for a variety of classes
Over the last 45 years, Canterbury has been committed to providing academic excellence at all grade levels, and multiple capital improvements throughout the years have ensured ever-expanding opportunities for students. These improvements rely on the advocacy and generosity of the entire community. Canterbury is excited to announce that the school will break ground in May on both projects.
