McKenna Hall was originally a barn on the farm that became CBA’s campus. Named in honor of CBA’s first principal, it has served a variety of purposes over the years for CBA’s athletic and extracurricular programs. Eventually, however, the costs of maintaining the old barn became prohibitive and remodeling the original structure proved uneconomic. The old McKenna Hall has now been demolished, and will be rebuilt to serve the needs of a 21st century college prep curriculum.
The exterior of the new McKenna Hall will look much the old one, but its capacious interior will be designed and equipped as flexible, multi-use academic space that will support a variety of enhancements to CBA’s course offerings and co-curricular programs.
