Montclair Kimberley Academy is a Pre-K-12 coeducational day school with an exceptional college preparatory program, unified by the concepts of the school motto: Knowledge, Vision, Integrity.

Located in Essex County, New Jersey, United States, it is one of New Jersey’s largest independent day schools. Active participation in the arts, athletics and service opportunities are encouraged to enhance the challenging academic curriculum.

The fine and performing arts addition for Montclair Kimberley Academy expands the school’s ability to accommodate their growing arts programs. The two‐level, 15,000 square foot addition provides new choral and orchestral band rooms with individual and group practice facilities on the upper floor.

This project was awarded a Gold Medal for design from the AIA Newark‐Suburban chapter.

As the modern alternative to stone, cement and slate, Petrarch panels give the impact needed to make designs stand out from the crowd. They bring individuality and style to a building while being extremely durable, low maintenance and highly resistant to impact.  Petrarch panels passed the rigid requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 285 Fire Test Standard.

Manufactured by Omnis, Petrarch’s strength and lightweight features in both 5/16” (7mm) and 7/16” (10mm) thicknesses make it the ideal choice for unique façades. Choose from a variety of colors and finishes to customize your project.
