Campus Master Plan

Master Plan Approved by Park Tudor Board of Directors

I am pleased to report that a Master Plan for Park Tudor’s campus was approved by the Board of Directors at their April meeting. You might recall that developing a Master Plan was a key recommendation made by our ISACS Accreditation Visiting Team following their campus visit in October.
 
The Master Plan has several important goals:
 
  • Programs: Develop campus facilities capable of delivering an excellent educational program to all Park Tudor students
  • Community: Create shared spaces for collaboration, learning, and community engaged experiences
  • Wellness: Promote health and wellness that nourishes students’ minds, bodies and spirits
  • Enrollment: Drive maximum enrollment across the campus
  • Campus security and layout: Enhance campus circulation and security
  • Campus character: Create modern structures that are respectful of the existing campus
     
 
Primary recommendations in the Master Plan include:
 
  • Create new buildings and landscapes that reinforce Park Tudor’s identity and draw the community together with signature programs.
  • Replace structures that perform poorly for intended programs or dramatically impact operations of campus.
  • Renovate existing structures which are well-located and well-suited to their purpose to become inspiring learning environments.
  • Preserve opportunity for future campus expansion on recently acquired land or by not adding significantly to any other existing building.
In order to achieve our objectives, the Master Plan calls for several potential new construction projects, which would be built in phases:
 
  • Wellness Center featuring a Field House; auxiliary gym; multipurpose studio; weight and cardio fitness room; and seminar classroom
  • New Lower School building with early childhood and elementary classrooms; specialty classrooms to accommodate science, language, art and music; a library; and a multi-purpose performance/dining/exercise space incorporated into the building.
  • Integrated Learning Center featuring STEM labs and a Resource Center (Library).
     
 
As you review the images of these potential new construction projects on campus, please keep in mind that they are concepts only, not final designs.
 
In addition, the Master Plan calls for renovating the current Middle School, Fine Arts Building, and Upper School. There are also significant recommendations for our campus landscape, incorporating areas of woodland, meadows and wetlands – with native plants that have grown in Indiana for hundreds of years - to enhance the long-term sustainability of the campus landscape.
 
Now that the Master Plan has been approved, we will be launching a feasibility study with detailed case statements for all of the primary recommendations included in the plan. During the feasibility study, many members of the Park Tudor community will be contacted for feedback and input, and to determine the level of interest and support in implementing the Master Plan. We will continue to keep the Park Tudor community apprised of our progress with regular updates. As always, I welcome your thoughts and questions.
 
Best regards,
