Churchill School & Center

Visioning & Campus Planning

The Churchill School and Center is an innovative and transformational K-12 learning community that empowers students with language-based learning disabilities. Since its founding in 1972, Churchill has embraced an individualized and holistic approach to education that nurtures students’ intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development.

Churchill recently embarked on a planning process that seeks to ‘reverse engineer’ the environment by starting with the student rather than compromising best practices due to facility limitations. This long-term planning effort is founded on the development of a Program Plan that articulates and aligns internal consensus regarding priorities for academics, art, performance, athletics and technology, as well as psychographic and demographic surveys that affirm key elements of enrollment. The corresponding Feasibility Study included a facilities condition assessment and consideration of real estate assets.

Role + Responsibilities

Working closely with Churchill’s leadership team and the Buildings & Grounds Committee, Zubatkin has served as a trusted advisor to the School, providing strategic planning and project management support complementary to the in-house operations team. Most recently, the Zubatkin team facilitated the development of the Program Plan and led the Feasibility Study, both of which included extensive community and stakeholder engagement. This foundational work positions Churchill for an upcoming capital campaign and helps to advance plans for the School’s future as they celebrate their 50th anniversary.
