ROOTED IN LEARNING

A campaign to expand the learning experience.

For many years, we have been excited at the opportunity to expand our school and serve our students with a facility where they can learn and grow. Today that vision is a reality as we embark on a historic $4 million capital campaign to build the Student Activity Center - a multipurpose space for our students, families, and community.

Over the past year, we have continued to firm up our agreement with the City of Des Moines and, in the second half 2020, we conducted a feasibility study to determine if we could secure the funds philanthropically. Your response was overwhelming! Together, we can make this dream a reality for our students, teachers, and larger community. 

Since then, ID8 Architects have been engaged to design a space suitable for both PE & Wellness and Fine & Performing Arts programs in addition to multipurpose uses for large gatherings. School leadership engaged Ball Construction to take our next steps for the building, and we began early phases of a Capital Campaign. You may see a few more people around the school campus as planning is underway and we're excited to share next steps with you as we progress.​
