SIGNIFICANCE OF PROJECT: The new school was called for in Cristo Rey Jesuit High School’s long-term strategic plan. It will allow the school to add to its instructional, athletic and artistic offerings.

To do this, it provides special spaces for performing and visual arts, a regulation-size basketball court, soccer field and fitness-training center, additional parking, a library and media center, additional science laboratories, spaces for student innovation including robotics and computer programming, collaborative work and conference spaces for staff and board, chapel space for in-school service and counseling spaces.

Cristo Rey Jesuit High School officially received its occupancy permit for the new school in the summer 2020, meeting a goal to have it open and operating by the 2020-2021 school year. But because of the restrictions related to COVID-19, the school year began with online classes and then only later progressed to in-person learning with small groups of students.
