New Campus 2019

Our new 25,000 square foot building will support the expansion of STEAM Instruction, arts education, and athletics, while allowing us to host performances and accommodate opportunities for spiritual reflection. We firmly believe that this new facility will play an integral role in helping to further establish Bernard Zell as one of the finest, independent schools in the nation.
The architectural plans for this project are made possible by the Campaign to Transform Bernard Zell. The architectural plans reflect the experience and vision of our administration, faculty, parents, alumni, students and community members who share in our mission of fostering collaboration, encouraging creativity, and preparing students for a lifetime of learning and problem-solving. 
The Campaign to Transform Bernard Zell is more than a plan to renovate and expand our school. It is an historic opportunity to realize a vision for the future that is as promising as our past - an opportunity to harness the winds of change in education, innovation, technology, society and Judaism, preserving this institution as a driving force of the Chicago Jewish community and beyond. 
We look forward to welcoming our community to our new home in Fall 2019.
