- SIX MILLION DOLLARS IN CAMPUS IMPROVEMENTS! In 2010, after a successful capital campaign, we were able to build and open our new 22,000 square foot multi-purpose building, Our Lady of Loreto Center, which includes junior high classrooms, a state of the art Science Lab, and a gymnasium/auditorium. In 2011 all of our existing classrooms received a “facelift” and in 2013 our Library was completely remodeled. Our campus continues to get better and better every year!
