CATE CAMPUS – SUMMERVILLE HIGH SCHOOL
Dorchester School District Two | Summerville, South Carolina
Two new CTE centers in Summerville, SC were designed to support the Summerville High School campus and the greater Dorchester County School District’s career focused programs.
The first facility serves culinary arts, health sciences and bio medical sciences. It includes a 19,500 sf single story facility located on the existing high school campus. The facility also includes support spaces for indoor athletics.
The second facility includes the partial conversion of the existing District office site, with new mechatronics and engineering labs, broadcasting studios, instructional classrooms and meeting and training areas, to meet the future educational needs of the program and District. The development of the building program for this facility took a collaborative research approach to identify the needs of the program. AAG partnered with the district, higher technical education institutions (Trident Tech and ECPI), local businesses (Boeing and Mercedes), and economic development leaders. This process allowed the District to clearly envision and identify the 21st century learning environments for students.
