Weil House & Barn Complex


Transforming Campus as We Transform Lives.


At The Harvey School we pride ourselves on our warm, welcoming community. From the moment you walk on campus, you feel a strong sense of inclusiveness and belonging. The WH&BC project builds on this core value by providing the opportunity for our physical structures to reflect this belief. When renovated, these historic buildings will create a beautiful arrival point where everyone feels at home.

Traditionally, a barn raising fulfills a practical need and also serves to bring a community together.

The entire Harvey community will be needed to make this dream a reality for our students and school. We have raised more than $1.7 million in cash and pledges so far!

Reflecting Our Way of Life.

Weil House

The Weil House will be transformed into a welcoming stop for all families and visitors when they arrive on campus, providing administrative office space for the Admissions, Development and Business offices. Here our alumni will find a natural arrival point for us to welcome them back to campus.

First Impression of Campus

The Harvey community is a vibrant, warm, and welcoming group of people, and what better way to reflect our values than creating space at the entrance to campus for all to enjoy. These new facilities will be a welcoming first stop, allowing visitors to feel at home from the moment they arrive on campus.

Weil Barn

This renovation offers an exciting opportunity to add new multipurpose space for school events, special campus celebrations, and alumni gatherings. The updated building will provide a variety of meeting options for staff, parents, alumni, and students alike.

Meet the Architect.

Innovative Thinking Toward the Future.

In Phase II of this project, the offices in Sylvan Hall will be renovated into much-needed classroom space, with the possibility of creating a dedicated STEM building. This will enable us to convert the classrooms currently in the boys dorm back to living facilities to better accommodate our housing needs.

"Right now, our faculty and staff resources are huge and the buildings just don't quite match that. Moving staff and administration down to the WH&BC opens up space for students. It makes the best use of the space we have and provides a beautiful, welcoming entry point to the campus to get people up the hill and dive deeper into what's here."

-Kathy Treat, Trustee and Parent

This project will also give us the opportunity to reconfigure the entrance from Route 22 to allow an easy flow of traffic in and out of campus, enhance security, improve pedestrian safety, and offer attractive landscaping along the most visible stretch of campus.

Bridging the Facilities Gap.

For Students

The Weil Barn will be transformed into a space where students can meet, participate in workshops and presentations, and hold class events.

For Faculty

The WH&BC opens the door for additional academic space and opportunities throughout campus.This project continues the process of matching our facilities with our extraordinary programs and faculty to showcase all we have to offer students and their families.

For Alumni

The WH&BC will provide a comfortable space for Harvey alumni to come back to campus, catch up with old friends, and arrange small gatherings. Being on campus allows for more interactions with former faculty and staff, and allows us to better host alums when they visit.
