St. Michael's Episcopal School

ONE. TOGETHER. THE CAMPAIGN FOR ST. MICHAEL'S

It’s an exciting time to be at St. Michael’s!

Let’s Open the Doors! Construction Is Underway for St. Michael’s Assembly Hall.

The St. Michael’s Board of Directors, Head of School, Robert E. Gregg III, and Director of Development, Mary King Coleman, are excited to share that construction of the Assembly Hall is UNDERWAY as part of the final phase of the ONE.TOGETHER. Capital Campaign. We need YOUR support to take the Campaign to the finish line!

The Assembly Hall will be the center point of the Campus, the place for students to attend chapel, performances, presentations, and music and art classes. Seating in this space may be arranged to face the stage or rotated towards a sweeping wall of colored glass with a defined cross, which serves as a reminder of the School’s mission and values. The need for an indoor gathering space is more evident than ever. We envision students in this beautifully planned building surrounded by a loving community that embodies our motto of “Knowledge and Love of God.”

The generous philanthropic support of the St. Michael’s community has provided what we enjoy today: a breath-taking 70-acre Campus with remarkable facilities complementing our unparalleled Lower and Middle School education programs. We are thankful for those who have already demonstrated their commitment to the ONE.TOGETHER Capital Campaign. As the campaign enters its final phase, the School’s Board of Directors and leadership will continue to seek support from the community to join one another to “Open the Doors” of the Assembly Hall. We look forward to what we will accomplish together.

The Assembly Hall (10,960 sq. ft.) includes:
• A performing arts space large enough to comfortably accommodate the School’s needs for weekly chapel services, performing arts and dining.
• Art room filled with natural light and equipped with a kiln, as well as a gallery space
• Music room with modern acoustics and sufficient storage
• Patio for special events

    Blessing of the Land
    St. Michael’s students, faculty, and staff gathered on Monday, March 21, for their first all-school chapel of the year. It was indeed a celebratory time and a long-awaited moment for us to stand socially-distanced at the site of the School’s future Assembly Hall and be part of the Blessing of the Land Chapel, led by the rector of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, the Reverend Dr. Jeunée Godsey, and the School’s Chaplain, Christian Hansen. Bob Gregg, head of school, and Caroline Jennings, board chair, provided a construction update and acknowledged the many whose vision, dedication, and generosity led us to this long-awaited moment to begin the Assembly Hall construction. We are excited to announce that construction, led by Loughridge & Co LLC, will begin in mid-June!

    The W. E. and Dale Harman Singleton Campus
    W. E. and Dale Harman Singleton’s gift of land in 2004 provided St. Michael’s with a new direction. Extensive planning and the generous philanthropy of many charted the course for the development of a new campus for St. Michael’s Episcopal School. Singleton Hall (grades sixth-eighth) and the Ellen Passmore Athletic Center opened in 2008. Then, following extensive feasibility studies and in fulfillment of the 2013-2017 Strategic Plan, St. Michael’s Board of Directors resolved to “move” the Lower School to the Singleton Campus. More than a move and more than new buildings, this resolution made it possible for the School to operate again as a ONE campus school. The ONE.TOGETHER. Capital Campaign provides the resources (existing assets, well-structured debt and philanthropic support) necessary to realize the Campus plan. The new Lower School, named Hubbard Hall in honor of the legacy of leadership by St. Michael’s fifth head of school, Edgar O. Hubbard III, opened in August 2018. Faculty and students engage in and flourish from cross-division work, increased teacher collaboration, all-school chapels and programs, and the return of special traditions such as kindergarten and eighth-grade Lunch Buddies. The final piece of the ONE.TOGETHER. Capital Campaign is the Assembly Hall, the center point of the Singleton Campus and the center point of activity. With enthusiasm, expectancy and working TOGETHER, faculty and staff, parents and grandparents ensure the success of the ONE.TOGETHER. Campaign, realizing and knowing that what made St. Michael’s the School it is today remains at the center.
