21st-Century Campus

The new Lubin-O'Donnell Center opened for classes in spring 2015, adding much needed spaces for performing arts and for athletics and wellness. Together with the new academic spaces, which opened in December 2015, the new facilities are securing Winsor’s place among the best schools in the country. These educational spaces provide an integrated learning environment that fully supports the vision for a 21st-century education.

Promise took a long view of what matters—for the girls and for the school. Faculty support and financial aid remained priority needs for Winsor, and a focus on Annual Giving and endowment throughout the campaign provided both immediate and enduring resources for these critical needs.
