Founded in 1799, Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School is the country’s oldest private Roman Catholic, college-preparatory school for girls. It serves over 500 9th-12th grade students on an urban campus located in the historic Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. When fire destroyed their ca. 1873 Founder’s Hall, cox graae + spack architects was commissioned to prepare a full campus master plan to address campus parking, vehicle / pedestrian circulation, outdoor campus spaces, performing arts facilities, athletic facilities and additional academic space. Subsequently over a span of 5 years, cox graae + spack architects completed four separate projects in a continuous building campaign. In 2011, the master plan was updated to address evolving Board and administration goals, needs and priorities. Key regulatory requirements addressed in conjunction with the master planning process included: securing approvals from the Advisory Neighborhood Commission, Commission of Fine Arts, and Board of Zoning Adjustment; phased construction that minimized disruption to on-going campus activities; design of significant structures in a historic context; and working with multiple constituencies representing the School community.
