Campus Updates


In the fall of 2016, Dexter Southfield launched its Athletics and Wellness Initiative to unlock the full potential of the campus for all students. The scope of the original initiative included renovating the existing ice rink, as well as building a new fieldhouse for basketball, volleyball and tennis, a strength and conditioning center, an athletic training facility, locker rooms, storage spaces, and offices. The project serves as the cornerstone of Dexter Southfield’s future campus vision by allowing the School to create more division distinctiveness and free up campus scheduling, while positively affecting academics, the arts, and other programming possibilities for all students.

After the Athletics Fieldhouse and Arena’s opening in December 2017, the School began a phase II effort to capitalize on the positive momentum and further address students’ needs related to athletics and wellness. Phase II began with renovating the softball and baseball fields for proper size and drainage; the fields were prepped and ready for the start of the spring sports season. Continuing plans include renovating the main field and installing a state-of-the-art turf surface, and installing a natural, outdoor amphitheater in the center of campus for performing arts programming and spectator seating.

The impact of phase II plans will bring the community together and physically connect academic, arts, and athletic programs. It will also improve the experience for all students in every athletic and wellness pursuit, and expand our commitment to both the performing arts and the overall health and wellness of the community. Construction is set to be completed by fall 2018.
