Athletics and Wellness Center

Amplifying Athletics and Wellness

We can already imagine how new facilities for Athletics and Wellness will combine physical education, health and training to promote fitness and healthy choices. In a new complex we will fortify the PC athletic legacy, cheer the Quakers, and gather to celebrate all-school traditions.

The athletics project will begin with the first project in the campus transformation: construction of a new baseball field on the newly purchased property on Strawbridge Campus. The new complex will also provide synergy between the athletics facilities on both sides of School House Lane.

The Athletics and Wellness Center will include:

  • Training room, wrestling room, two basketball courts for team practice and PE program (the courts convert to one competition court)
  • Locker rooms, meeting spaces
  • Safe, direct access to track /Maguire Field / Strawbridge Campus / Baseball Field

The new complex will also provide synergy between the athletics facilities on both sides of School House Lane.

The campus master planning project determined that the very best place to build the new lower school now, as well as for the future development of our 47-acre campus, is on the site of the current field house. Moving the functions of the field house to a new Athletics and Wellness Center adjacent to Maguire Field creates the opportunity to build the lower school in the best location—and create a vibrant, collective Academic Village.

Kurtz Center for the Performing Arts on the right presents a unified front line representing the ongoing vision and new expression of academics, arts and athletics.
