We are promoting several campus and building initiatives over the course of the next few years. These initiatives will ensure that Skutt Catholic presents itself as a vibrant, innovative, and state-of-the art facility for the next generation of students and families choosing to support our mission.
Initiative: Athletic Entrance
Most of our visitors enter the building through the gym doors. Our intent is to create an entrance that makes a statement about Skutt Catholic,s commitment to excellence as various groups walk into the building. By enlarging the space we can create an area for fans to gather and visit before and after games. We can also use the expanded wall space for signage that promotes the accomplishments of current students and alumni.
Athletic Entrance upgrade:
Athletic Entrance upgrade cost: $1,500,000
Initiative: The Great Hall…a Multi-use Room for Meals, Meetings, and More
There are very few hours in a week’s time when the building is not in use. A major initiative being discussed is the creation of a Great Hall, complete with state of the art kitchen and a building NAMING opportunity. The creation of this space will allow Skutt Catholic to prepare and serve healthy lunch options for students, faculty, and staff.
When lunch is not in session, the Great Hall could be sectioned off into smaller gathering spaces for meetings and/or dance, cheer, theatre, or music practice. The Great Hall could hold school receptions, the Homecoming dance, Angel Flight, wedding receptions, and outside community events. Upgraded tables and chairs could eliminate the need for costly rentals each year. Multi-purpose flooring could serve a variety of event needs, ultimately relieving the pressure we currently place on our gymnasiums’ floors when we hold events in both the main and auxiliary gyms.
Great Hall Wish List:
Estimated Great Hall Costs: $6,000,000
Initiative: Media Center
In 2017 the Media Center will have the following updates:
Estimated costs: $300,000
Initiative: Performing Arts Center
Since the inception of the school, the Skutt Catholic community has dreamed of building a Performing Arts Center on our campus. Over the years plans have been developed, tweaked, fine tuned, and reworked. The talent and resolve shown by our Skutt Catholic students was truly inspiring. A Skutt Catholic Performing Center remains at the forefront of our Advancement fundraising planning.
Estimated Performing Arts Center costs: $5,000,000
