The Chapel, a Tudor brick structure with a timbered, hammer-beam roof, is unusual among Episcopal school chapels that tend to favor English Gothic style. While it lacks the soaring heights and grandeur of Groton or St. George’s, it more than makes up for in a palpable sense of intimacy that those chapels can’t begin to match.
