Designed by Gensler, the world-class modern and sustainable campus at 201 N. Douglas St. in El Segundo, CA, will incorporate the latest technology and hands-on, interdisciplinary environments for collaborative, project-based learning. The new campus, slated to open in August 2017, will house Da Vinci Science on the 2nd floor, Da Vinci Communications on the 3rd floor, and Da Vinci Design on the 4th floor. Da Vinci and Wiseburn administrative offices will be housed on the 1st floor.

According to the construction timeline, the main building will be available for use by students in August 2017. Phase 2 (the gymnasium, pool and an athletic field) is expected to be completed by Spring 2018.
