Our Campuses

888 Turk Street

The 888 Campus's flexible furnishings are a hit with Middle SchoolersIn 2013-14, our Strategic Vision process identified middle school facilities as one of the top challenges facing CAIS. In response, the CAIS community rallied behind Becoming Our Best Self: The Campaign for CAIS, exceeding the goal by 25% and raising more than $10,000,000 to build and outfit a state-of-the-art educational facility for CAIS middle school that tripled the space for the division. The new campus boasts:

  • larger, flexible classrooms that support a variety of teaching and learning styles
  • The Carroll Family Learning Center, an 1,800 sq. ft. hub for learning supporting library research, presentations, and conference rooms for small group work and gatherings
  • The Phanachet Design Lab, a maker’s space to integrate design thinking projects into the core curriculum
  • The Sensato Performing Arts Room
  • a dedicated science floor with two labs and prep room for science faculty
  • more than 7,000 sq. ft. of outdoor space for play, relaxation, and learning
