The A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center and Chapman Green

Designed to be a central part of the community, the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center will be the focus of Holland Hall’s bucolic 162-acre campus. Although our past facilities have served us well, it’s time for us to tackle a long-standing problem – outdated and undersized dining spaces. The new Marylouise Dining Hall will allow for all Upper and Middle School students to use the same dining facility. A centrally located and modernized kitchen will provide for a wider variety of healthy food choices, separate serving stations, and reduced cost of food production by combining two kitchens. The A.R. Wellness Center will house a wellness floor where our community will have access to updated facilities with an aim toward training the whole person. Research shows us that important learning happens outside the classroom. The Tandy will be a space for students and faculty to interact, study, and further engage with one another.

The Chapman Green

The Chapman Green provides the backdrop for what we hope all students experience at Holland Hall. As an extension of our focus on strong, healthy community relationships, the green provides a comfortable, inviting space for students, faculty, and families to engage with one another around storied school events like Field Day and Primary School Night. The Chapman Green also invites casual interactions and connections outside of the traditional school walls. Just as the Upper School Barnard Commons has helped create friendships that last lifetimes, the Chapman Green will extend those possibilities, building
on the strength of Holland Hall's close-knit community.

“Even though socializing with friends has declined, students increasingly value institutional social offerings and environments during the college choice process.”
