Charles Schweinfurth, LS Architects
- For the school building, the beautiful 10,730 square feet Straub Mansion, designed by Charles Schweinfurth, was restored and transformed into an award winning, 8-classroom facility complete with an art studio, warming kitchen, library, ample office space, and musical instrument practice carrels.
- The adjoining carriage house was completely gutted and renovated into a state of the art science lab with radiant floor heat, geothermal heating and cooling, photovoltaic electricity, an acid neutralization tank, laboratory hood and attached greenhouse.
- The adjacent, Otis Mansion was converted from a three family house into a dormitory for male and female boarding students and house parents.
