American College of Sofia | Campus Center and Library Restoration
The American College of Sofia is a co-educational, private high school, with an emphasis on a rigorous, English-language education and a college-preparatory curriculum for both Bulgarians and other nationalities. The College traces its roots to a boys’ school founded in 1860 by American missionaries. A new campus to the southeast of the City of Sofia was built in the late 1920s. Beginning with World War II, the school was closed for a period of 50 years.
November, 1989 saw the fall of Communism in Bulgaria. Under the direction of Dr. Roger Whitaker, the school reopened in September, 1992. Since then, the American College of Sofia has continued to grow and utilizes much of the original campus. In November 2011, Celli-Flynn Brennan developed the first master planning document that identified the need for a campus center and library with an emphasis on student socialization.
In the fall of 2014 ACS hired CFB as the Architect of Record as well as local associate architect Dimtcho Tilev to design the new campus center and library and to restore “Old Main”. The project is currently under construction.
