The 18,400sf activities center, added to Oldenburg Academy in 2020, has several noteworthy aspects. The center features an 860-seat basketball area large enough for multiple teams to practice simultaneously and a second-floor mezzanine, which overlooks the court below. In addition, locker rooms and a training room were strategically placed on the Northside of the building, providing students convenient access to the football field.

"The basketball court is one of the coolest projects I have been a part of. My favorite part is the perfectly sculpted silhouette of the village of Oldenburg directly at center court."
– Todd Thackery, Vice President of Architecture, SHP
