Experience the Jan Phillips Learning Center first hand and learn how the building incorporates principles of regenerative design and the Living Building Challenge to meet The College School’s mission to engage and captivate students through hands on nature-based experiential learning. Multiple elements of the center represent stories connecting visitors to nature and the community with a focus on creating opportunities for multi-sensory experiences and for curriculum integration. The building is currently in its performance period seeking full “Living” certification in the Living Building Challenge (LBC). Achieving certification would make this the second Living Building Challenge certified project in the St. Louis area.
