Catholic Central School

This expansion project will allow CCS to consolidate more grades at the East High Street campus, providing economic and academic efficiencies. A $1 million chapel/entrance project is anticipated in the spring of 2014 as well. This project was necessary to position the school for long-term stability and growth of academic programs and student support. “Catholic Central School has been blessed by the generosity of our community, which has allowed us to take the next step in this historic project”, said Dr. Kenith Britt, President, Catholic Central School . “Expanding and renovating our East High Street Campus will allow Catholic Central to continue to provide a high-quality educational experience for our students now and in the future.”

High School students will start the 2014-2015 school year through a new entrance on the north side with a new 2-story classroom wing to the west of the existing building. The students are excited for the school year to come to a close for more than one reason this year, as they witnessed signs of the upcoming construction in their final week of school. Cameron Luther, incoming senior and 2013-14 Student Body President, said “Everyone is so excited to see the changes in our building. Even though my class is a little sad we won't be around when the project is completed, we know it will be great when the younger students are able to move up to this campus!” In addition to the new chapel/elementary entrance on the front of the building, also planned are new administrative offices, an auxiliary gym/cafeteria, and additional parking.

More than 360 donors have contributed or pledged $6.3 million so far towards a goal of $7 million. Realizing additional contributions towards the Cornerstone for the Future Capital Campaign would also allow for the replacement of the 1957 boiler and original windows, cutting-edge technology, security upgrades, and new furniture.

The expansion was designed by McCall Sharp Architecture and Kapp Construction was selected as the construction manager to oversee the project. Catholic Central School also gratefully acknowledges the hard work and dedication of its Board of Limited Jurisdiction, Campaign Leadership, Steering Committee, and Construction Committee.

 Catholic Central School is currently made up of three different campuses: the Limestone Campus (grades PK-3), the Lagonda Campus (grades PK, 4-6) and the Junior/Senior High School on East High Street (grades 7-12). By combining grades from three campuses into one, a greater sense of “community” will be created.
