- TEN 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. In September 2017 our new 2 story School Administration building (the Mary Ward Center) opened with school administration on the first level and four classrooms on the second floor! Finally, in 2018, through the generosity of Shea Homes, our school cafeteria was remodeled, additional security fencing was installed, our fire alarm and intercom systems were upgraded and our entire campus was completely rewired.
Over 75% attend local Catholic High Schools with the remainder attending public or charter schools.
