Stone Ridge of the Sacred Heart Student Life Center

Stone Ridge of the Sacred Heart Student Life Center

Stone Ridge School of the Scared Heart is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school in the Network of Sacred Heart Schools for girls, Grades 1-12, with a co-educational early childhood program.

Initially retained by the school to complete a master plan, Hord Coplan Macht is also designing a new Student Life Center for the campus.  The master plan analyzed the needs of the entire school and developed a new vision for the Stone Ridge campus to support many of the strategic plan initiatives.

The new Student Life Center will be a 2-story 54,000 gsf facility at the very heart of the campus along the new Campus Walk, including an all-school dining space, 420-seat performing arts theater, visual arts classrooms, vocal music, band, musical practice rooms, orchestral music space and ample new student life support spaces.  It will serve the entire school community hosting drama, music and dance performances, lectures and all-school masses among its many functions. The exterior landscape will be well developed on at least three sides to create a series of stepping outdoor terraces for outside-the-classroom learning, outdoor seating, dining and gardens.
