Episcopal completed the first phase of its campus master plan expansion project with the dedication ceremonies for two academic buildings, Parks and Lastinger Halls, on January 6, 2011. Named for one of the school’s founders, the late Reverend Robert Parks, and longtime Episcopal supporters, the Delores and Allen Lastinger family, the two new buildings encompass nearly 13,000 square feet of classroom space on Munnerlyn Campus separated by an 8,000-square-foot courtyard. Each building houses 12, 900-square-foot classrooms, with the most updated technology available. The spaces encourage increased collaboration between students, interdisciplinary studies and allow today’s student to learn in a facility that fosters academic creativity. The buildings incorporate columns and arches, outdoor hallways and second story open decks with views of the St Johns River and downtown Jacksonville.
