Episcopal High School Expansion Headed to Planning Commission

Episcopal High School, a private boarding school tucked away on Seminary Hill at 1200 N Quaker Lane, could be undergoing a significant expansion soon with a new fitness center and dorms.

The proposed health and wellness center would replace the existing 90-year-old facility. The new building will be 17,000 square feet — roughly twice the size of the current structure — and if approved construction could begin next year. The facility would also have a classroom, a meditation room, a counseling center and more.

The school is also proposing to construct two 36-40 bed dorms. The new dorms would help the school work towards its target student-to-faculty ratio in its dorms towards the target 15:1. Currently, there are 23 students for every faculty member in the dorms.

The plans are scheduled to go to the Planning Commission on Jan. 5.
