Please feel free to introduce yourself when you contact us or if they contact you! We are excited to have them on board! You will have an opportunity to meet them at our back-to-school event July 31st.

SUMMER PROJECTS 2022

Working with an old building with outdated infrastructures to transform learning spaces is not an easy task and it comes with a hefty price tag. The Diocese of St. Petersburg recently approved $100,000 worth of needed repairs to our school building and grounds. All projects are scheduled to take place over the next several weeks! This includes, but not limited to, painting in the main building, landscaping, student laboratory repairs, deep cleaning in classrooms and maintenance repairs.
