What are the key components of the Facilities Project?
The School has reimagined teaching and learning spaces that will encourage imagination, collaboration and innovation. Each space has been carefully designed to maximize space and flexibility, curiosity and creativity. The new FutureLab will impact learning for virtually every student at Sacred Heart. The new design includes:
- LS Science Lab
- MS Science Lab
- Life Sciences Lab
- Chemistry Lab 1
- Chemistry Lab 2
- Physics/Engineering Lab
- 2 Makerspaces -- one double-height with a catwalk for storage
- 2 Multipurpose Classrooms
- 1 Research Lab for student projects
- New seating and art display space
- New Faculty Offices
- New indoor Atrium connection between Mansions
- New Digital Media Lab with a green screen
- New Senior Lounge
- New Technology Office
- New Health Office
- Renovated and reconfigured Dining Hall
- More student and staff restrooms
- New HVAC and air-conditioning system throughout entire floor
- New Storage Rooms for food, recycling and trash
Why this renovation? Why now?
Student interest in science and technology has skyrocketed in the past few years, and demand for STEAM programming is higher than ever. Ninety-first Street’s last major project added the Athletics and Wellness Center (406), which added new opportunities for student success in athletics and wellness. Now, FutureLab will do the same for science, technology, engineering, art and math.
What is the timetable for construction and program implementation?
Construction began in March 2020 and was completed for the fall of 2022. Click here for full details.
How much will it cost?
The $25 million campaign includes a targeted goal of $20 million for the construction of FutureLab and $5 million for the Endowment to support faculty and staff positions, curricular enhancements, and other necessities.
How will this be paid for?
In order to accomplish all of our FutureLab facility and curricular goals, the school has embarked upon a $25,000,000 Capital Campaign. As of Fall 2022 we have secured nearly $21 million from generous early donors.
