Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

The Newly Redesigned and Dynamic
Fitness and Athletic Center
At Horace Greeley High School

On February 27, 2019, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to officially open the newly redesigned and updated Fitness and Athletic Center at Horace Greeley High School.

In May 2018, the Greeley Sports Boosters organization was awarded a $600,000 Twin Oaks Recreational Community Grant. The Boosters then gifted the grant money to the Chappaqua Central School District, who oversaw and facilitated the updating and redesign of our existing spaces. In the end, we created a comprehensive fitness and athletic center that will promote and support physical and mental health, wellness, and great sportsmanship at Greeley.

The Fitness and Athletic Center Project will enable students to take advantage of innovative spaces on par with other progressive school features such as the iLab and new STEAM center. "This generous grant will allow us to transform our physical education curriculum at Greeley," said Dr. Christine Ackerman, Superintendent of Schools.

This Fitness and Athletics Center Project has resulted in three modernized spaces:

  1. The Fitness Center: A 5000-sq. ft. fitness space housing cardio equipment, a turf area for speed and agility training, exercise machines, free weights, and audio-visual equipment.

  2. The Mind-Body Studio: A 2800-sq. ft. studio for yoga, Pilates and other movement disciplines.

  3. The Exhibition Gym: The 11,500-sq. ft. Main Gym is now equipped with a multipurpose high-tech video, score and media board, six modern basketball systems and multiple divider nets.

The Project was widely supported within the CCSD community, having been endorsed by the District's Facilities Committee, Wellness Committee and Board of Education, as well as New Castle United for Youth and the Chappaqua School Foundation, who awarded a $50,000 grant to the Athletic Department towards this project.

These amazing new spaces exemplify the importance of community relationships and partnerships, which are dedicated to educating the whole child!
