The Gym Is Now Open

Grace’s spectacular new gym on the fourth floor at Cooper Square opened in September 2018. The 12,000 square foot facility with regulation courts, serving Grades 7-12, qualifies to host volleyball and basketball league state tournament games and NYSAISAA playoffs.
Bleacher seating on the main floor and in the balcony accommodate 250 spectators.

Additional features on the floor include an athletic commons, fitness center, batting cage, golf simulator, and offices for Physical Education and Athletics Department staff.

The new space has allowed the development of a new robotics/design lab located in place of the former fitness center.
