The Delaware Military Academy is one of the first navy endorsed charter schools. The building is characterized by generous natural lighting, bold exterior forms, and a highly efficient plan. Construction was carried out on a design/build basis. The interior minimizes circulation, emphasizes natural light everywhere – including corridors – and zones noisy from quiet areas. The long north wall boldly defines a space for drill and outdoor assembly as well as parking; the similar south wall presents a distinct image from the distant interstate.
