In 2002 the Nantucket New School (NNS) opened the doors to its beautiful facility at 15 Nobadeer Farm Road. Named the Louise F. Walker Building, the school pledged to have its campus serve as a learning center for the entire island by providing space for lectures, seminars, music, dance, and events serving the community at large. In addition, the school is available on a limited basis for private parties and for meetings.
During that same year, an anonymous benefactor donated a house to the School and had it moved to the Nobadeer Farm Road campus. With the help of a number of parents, the house, named, at the request of the donor, the George Fraker House after the man who had previously lived in it, was renovated. Fraker House, as it is affectionately known, is now the home of the Head of School, Jonathan Alden, and his family.
In 2009 a formal partnership with Strong Wings Adventure School began, resulting in the merger of the two organizations a year later. The Nobadeer Farm Rd. campus then expanded to over six acres to include the Strong Wings facilities.
During the spring of 2016 the latest addition to the campus was completed when Strong Wings was gifted a house for the Director of Programs.
