PMA broke ground on Tuesday, June 27 beginning the transformation of the front of the school into an atrium style entrance, improving the overall layout, functionality and accessibility.
PMA is located on the historic grounds of millionaire Edward F. Searles, best known locally for his stone-walls located throughout Methuen, MA, Salem, NH and Windham, NH. The main entrance of PMA was Mr. Searles former carriage house built in the late the late 1800’s. PMA opened its doors to the first students in 1958. The time has come to commit to a complete renovation and yet still respect the historic structure where the school was established.
Mr. Angelo Petrozzelli, former parent and owner of Design Partnership Architects, Inc, of Haverhill, MA has been working with PMA for the past two years, developing plans to help PMA create a vision and now will turn this vision into a reality with the help of CBC Construction. The goal is for the construction to take place during the summer and be complete early fall.
This is a very exciting time, said Rose Maria DiFiore Redman, ’85, Head of school, I have been working at PMA for 28 years, as a teacher, Assistant Principal. Principal and now Head of School. During my time here, I have witnessed many changes, including the building of the Dupre Center in 2002, becoming a co-ed institution in 2011, creating a dorm in 2012 housing international students from 11 different countries, and now this. Change is very exciting and I cannot think of anyone who embraces the challenge and exhilaration of change as much as PMA.
The cost for renovations is projected to be $750,000. PMA launched their Discover the Potential Capital Campaign, with the goal of raising $1 million at their annual Legacy Gala and Auction Evening on March 31, to fund this project and increase endowments for future student scholarships.
PMA’s Proposed New Entrance
In 2002, PMA, looking to the future, embarked on a $1 Million Capital Campaign to build the Dupre Center. This monumental undertaking added a new larger athletic center, theater and expanded arts center. Alumni, parents, community partners, and friends all showed their belief in the future of PMA with their financial support.
Flash forward to 2017, and PMA is again looking to invest in our future. A ground breaking occurred on June 27 to begin the renovation of the Edward F. Searles Carriage House which is the center of the Academy building. This exciting expansion will include a new sun-drenched, atrium style entrance along with other internal improvements which will enhance the Academy as well as improve accessibility and safety for our students, staff, and visitors. Today the need is great. The 2017-2020 Capital Campaign needs to raise $1 Million for the renovation and build our endowment.
