“This building represents the intersection of PC’s past and its future. Names like Caldwell, Gallagher, White, Still, Kurz and Lyons connect us to our history, while the spaces themselves create the environment we need to be successful for the next 50 years.”
– Darryl J. Ford, Head of School
From the moment seniors cut the ribbon and flowed through the entrance, the Graham fulfilled its promise.
The new facility is intended to elevate PC athletics and promote wellness, and it also was envisioned as a hub, a place where students and adults could gather in community to workout, watch a game, or simply take a brain break.
Students arriving before school and staying late, and at many points during the day, are spending downtime in light-filled spaces, surrounded by expansive views of the outdoor campus. And, oh!, those yellow chairs!
On PC/GA Day, more than 500 parents, alumni, students and friends accepted the invitation to tour the new facility. And with winter sports season just beginning, the Quakers and their fans will compete and host in a premier athletics and wellness center.
The William A. Graham IV OPC ’58 Athletics & Wellness Center is a vibrant 88,000-square-foot facility that amplifies athletics and wellness. With two competition courts, a wrestling room, fitness center, rock wall, athletic training suite, classroom space and nutrition center, the Graham is a community gathering space as well.
