The underlying philosophy is a flexibility to accommodate students’ changing needs - in terms of curriculum, technology and teaching.


Toledo, Ohio  St. Francis de Sales High School teamed with The Collaborative Inc to renovate its existing library, and create a modern space for tutoring, private and group study, research and teaming.  The new 6,500 SF Student Achievement Center seeks to appeal to students’ need for technology and comfortable study space.

The new space will include a computer lab for class and independent use.  A testing lab will provide privacy for both proctored exams and assistive technologies.  In addition to before and after school independent study, the new center includes space for academic tutoring.

Punching through the existing brick facade brings natural light to the spaces, and showcases the school’s commitment to academic excellence.
