Ravenscroft School Olander Center for Student Life at the A.E. Finley Activity Center

This activity center has been an iconic piece of the Ravenscroft campus for decades, allowing middle and upper school students to balance their classroom education with physical wellness. With this new partial renovation and expansion, the facility now boasts features such as a double-height dining hall/multipurpose room, small group meeting rooms, and flexible collaboration spaces. The future is bright for this center as well with Ravenzone, the Hall of Fame, and more on the way.

Ravenscroft fine arts students craft a banner for the Student Life Center construction team

Dozens of students, faculty, and staff expressed their appreciation by creating and adding colorful thumbprints to a "Thank you!" banner, conveying gratitude for the nearly 18 months of dedicated effort the project team devoted to bringing the new Student Life Center to fruition.

"I always felt supported and the level of service was always professional - whether it was making design changes on the fly to keep the project moving, helping with quiet days for testing, helping with moving boulders, helping with donor tours even when it was a last minute item, or just keeping me up to date on schedule changes and making adjustments. There are many more examples of how this team went out of its way to help and support me throughout this project."
