Design & Construction

Inspiring Design

The Science & Innovation Center provides students opportunities to learn and grow far beyond what our previous buildings could offer. Working with our partners, Larson-Incitti Architects and Saunders Construction, we added 65,000 square feet of intentionally designed classrooms, flexible spaces and furniture, and cutting-edge technology. The building encourages collaboration and experimentation and elevate the educational experience for every student.

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • Who gets to use the Science & Innovation Center?

    All students have the opportunity to utilize the resources of this new building. Like the Steele Center, the common spaces serve both our young men and women, while the classes offered remain primarily single-sex as they are across the rest of campus. 

    Though the curricular focus of the space is largely on the sciences and technology, all curricular areas can utilize the Innovation Center, Idea Lab, The Gallery presentation space and other tools in the building to enhance their pedagogy.
  • What is included in the building?

    The Science & Innovation Center provides a welcoming entrance to our campus that serves our current and prospective families, alumni and mission partners in a space that showcases our Catholic, Jesuit mission and identity. 

    All science courses are taught in the new building, along with courses in fine arts and media technology. There is also space for clubs, presentations and community gatherings.
