Cardinal Newman High School has broken ground on the $10 million renovation of its North Academic Building.
The updated building on the Catholic prep school’s West Palm Beach campus will include new science facilities and laboratories; mathematics classrooms; admissions, college advising and student services offices; and an “innovation center.”
Construction is expected to last about a year, during which time the school will remain fully operational.
Brother Thomas Zoppo, outgoing president of Cardinal Newman, led the renovation drive, joined by campaign chairs Nick Coniglio and Rich Rendina, as well as major gifts chairs Ellen Acosta and Jim Arrigo. The school also continues its five-year Shaping the Future appeal, raising funds for continued advancement.
“We deeply appreciate the generosity of the many donors who have contributed and believed in the vision to enhance Cardinal Newman’s facilities to provide students with an unrivaled learning environment,” Zoppo said in a prepared statement.
Cardinal Newman was founded in 1961 and has graduated about 12,000 students.
