In an email announcement on February 18, Head of School John C. Warren '74 shared details of the approval of St. Mark's new residence hall. The announcement is below:
I am thrilled to report that the St. Mark's Board of Trustees recently approved moving forward with construction of the new residence hall. The Residential Life Initiative has been a major priority of the Lives of Consequence campaign, and receiving this approval is a significant step toward realizing, in a manner appropriate for this and future generations of St. Markers, the "school under one roof" concept envisioned by founder Joseph Burnett.

All of us at St. Mark's recognize that projects like these could not be accomplished without the generous support of our donors. Thank you for all you have done, and continue to do, to make St. Mark's School a leading-edge educational environment for students, faculty, and staff.
Its design—from lounges and study rooms, to communal kitchens and larger common areas that can be used for educational and recreational activities—will create living and learning spaces that benefit both those living in the residence hall and also the larger St. Mark's community.
