Hundreds of current and alumni families, faculty, staff, and students participated in the transformative “Reinvent, Reaffirm, Reimagine & Rebuild” strategic planning process. In an effort to strike a careful, conscious balance between old and new, between consistency and change, several capital needs were identified in this Strategic Plan. In the summer of 2013, The Roeper School engaged in a feasibility study that would gather community input and provide a clear direction and plan for moving forward. Geographically at the center of the building, the centerpiece of the campaign is the development of a Learning Commons on the Birmingham Campus, which will include a collaborative and technology-rich academic space as well as social space. Based on input from current faculty, staff, and students, HMFH Architects, a firm with extensive independent school experience, has designed this Learning Commons, reimagining the building and how it can facilitate the Roeper philosophy of self-actualization and interdependence.
