Challenge Accepted

Since it opened in the summer of 1999, Academy Hall has served as the front door to our campus. After 17 years of standing front-and-center on its own, the main administrative building (with architecture and pillars paying homage to the school’s original structure on Nelson Road) now has window-paneled wings on both sides: a new … More Challenge Accepted

Buckner & Sons

Otis Lee Buckner, the grandfather of Columbus Academy rising junior Jerome Buckner, began Buckner & Sons Masonry in 1990 with just $1,000. He had hoped that his four sons would join him in the venture but only his third-oldest, Jerome’s father (who also goes by Jerome), eventually would do so. When the elder Jerome was … More Buckner & Sons

T-Minus 10 Weeks

To all the dads out there, Happy Father’s Day! Instead of making you read a bunch of text explaining what’s going on with our various construction areas and renovations, we thought photos would be a better way to show you.

Quite frankly, the weather and conditions don’t do justice to how good the new spaces will look when completed. So we requested new renderings from our facilities and construction crew to give everyone a peek … More A New Look

Happy New Year!

Held on the first day of winter break, our annual Holiday Luncheon (click here for more photos) is a terrific representation of Columbus Academy because it includes several generations of alumni all in one room and it ties graduates from eight different decades together, including many members of the senior class who are invited and … More Happy New Year!

A Closer Look

An interesting and somewhat under-the-radar event happened last month that bears a closer look. The first step in a cool sequence of events was the setting out of two large steel beams that were painted white on one side. The white surface was meant as a canvas to collect the signatures of each senior. One … More A Closer Look

Creating Beauty from Construction

Back in early September, Student Council President Lawson Stump sent an email to her fellow students asking for designs reflecting the theme “Building a More Beautiful Tomorrow” that could be used to beautify the temporary construction wall between Academy Hall and the Upper School. She encouraged clubs, teams, classes and advisories to submit images that … More Creating Beauty from Construction
