This academy, the oldest school for boys in the region, dating to 1869, moved to the new suburbs from its original West End location. Set in the middle of a resaca in an almost island-like setting, the new campus was awarded a design citation in 1965 from Progressive Architecture. Arranged around a central green space, the complex is composed of a one-story, flat-roofed classroom building; a two-story, Marist Brothers quarters with vaulted concrete roof; and a gymnasium with an intersecting, vaulted concrete roof that recalls the structural expression of Eero Saarinen.
