Chicago Military Academy

3533 South Giles

The Academy’s decorative bronze doors opened for the 1999 school year to 140 freshmen who were offered 26 modern classrooms, a media center and ballroom. While restoring the armory’s graceful iron staircases to their former glory, the PBC also rebuilt the drill hall into a three-story, sunlit, multi-purpose space that will host community activities, sports and marching exercises.

This project was a winner of a 2000 National Preservation Honor Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
