FEBRUARY 2014 On a cold winter morning, Fr. Phil Steele, SJ '66 and Mr. John Sheridan '76, then president and chair of the Board of Trustees respectively, cut the ribbon to open the newest building on campus.
Named in honor of Fr. Steele, the Steele Center includes a 485-seat theatre with state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology, dressing rooms for productions, four classrooms for instrumental and choral music, a broadcast center for the student media program, Principal's and Communications Offices, and café.
On average, 400-500 students participate in performing arts classes and clubs as a result of this facility, and course offerings have nearly doubled since it opened.
