Dr. Kenneth P. Wackes Media Center Renovation

Media Center Renovation

A media center serves as the heart of an academic institution, fostering an appetite for lifelong learning, creativity, and collaboration. Our goal is to create a state-of-the-art media center that will serve as the hub for our students to grow academically, socially, and spiritually.

The Vision

The new design will more efficiently utilize our current space while taking into consideration changes in instructional methods, technology, and the need for both individual and group study areas. Since the media centers are used by all students—from preschoolers through seniors—this is truly a schoolwide project will impact all students. We need every family to participate to reach our goal. We are grateful for every gift and all those who make a gift of $5,000 or more will be recognized on a plaque in the media center.
