Branding & Wayfinding

Revitalizing a historic high school to respond to modern curriculum.

After 40 years of reactive improvements led to a disjointed campus that was difficult to navigate and unequipped for next generation learning, Corgan’s design challenge was to renew and expand the existing building to serve 2,500 students, while blurring the line between old and new and giving the school a new and cohesive identity. The exterior draws inspiration from the town’s original high school built in 1918, while the modern interior features space for collaboration and ideation to facilitate new education models. The design encompasses traditional, alternative, and career technology spaces in a single campus. Tapping into community needs, the expanded CTE curriculum provides career pathways prior to graduation.

By utilizing virtual reality, Corgan was able to bring Cleburne ISD and the community into the design as it developed.
