The acquisition of the La Brisa estate next to the upper school has created an opportunity to redesign the campus.
The La Brisa grounds nearly double our acreage, adding room for new walkways, a new quad and meeting areas. The architecturally significant La Brisa house is part of local history and will offer an inviting and stately reception space for campus visitors and bring together the school’s administrative core, housing the Head of School’s Office, the Admission Office and the Advancement/Alumni Engagement Office. La Brisa provides something you don’t expect to find in the middle of Miami: a swath of unspoiled nature, including a mangrove habitat, native flora and access to the bay.
Protecting the environmental legacy of Coconut Grove is an essential part of our stewardship mission. As you will see in our campus master plan, La Brisa’s green spaces will be carefully preserved.
