Project Detail

The Governor's Academy | Parker River Envir. Studies Center

New STEM Facility | Newbury, Massachusetts

The Governor’s Academy, founded in 1763 on New England farmland, combines centuries of tradition with a dedication to educational innovation. Students flourish in a diverse community distinguished by enduring relationships with teachers and defined by a commitment to learning and a thoughtful balance of academics, athletics, arts and service to others. Academy graduates are life-long learners who embrace their civic duty and global responsibility.

The school is seeking to capitalize its distinctive location on the banks of the Parker River and great Atlantic salt marshes by developing project-based academic programs that promote environmental stewardship. Flansburgh Architects has been retained to design a new Marine Science Center overlooking the Parker River to provide a learning environment with outdoor classroom facilities in the campus woodland, collection stations, greenhouse, wet lab, boat dock, and a boardwalk in the marshes.
