Loyola Blakefield New Innovative Learning Center
Loyola Blakefield’s new 46,000 SF Innovative Learning Center is now under construction. JMT Architecture designed the new middle school on its Towson, MD campus to serve sixth- through eighth-grade students. The building will house 10 classrooms, two science labs, an art studio, cyber science lab, and a learning commons where all the students can interact. The Innovative Learning Center is designed to be environmentally friendly and energy-efficient with a green roof and expansive views of Loyola’s grounds.
At the groundbreaking ceremony on Nov. 6, President Anthony Day addressed the attendees: “We have been here for nearly 170 years and are proud to offer an unrivaled educational experience in the Catholic tradition. More than breaking ground on a new building, we are cultivating something magnificent, a future in education that is beyond our imaginations—one that will inspire generations of young men to lives of learning, of faith, and of service to others.”
The new middle school is an exciting opportunity as it will be a one-of-a-kind space for the students that artistically combines both modern and traditional Jesuit architectural components. JMT Architecture, an expert in designing K-12 schools, has supported Loyola Blakefield since 2006. Our experts created a master plan, which guided the school for the strategic growth on its campus. As the years passed, we have provided design and construction modifications for Xavier Hall, Sheridan Hall, and Wheeler Hall. We are proud to be part of the school’s continued growth.
