Capital Campaign Surpasses $22 million- More big improvements are coming this summer
The Forward, Always Forward Capital Campaign, which began with an original goal of $12 million, exceeded $22 million in December 2021 thanks to the incredible support and belief of the Benedictine community. Planning is underway for the new parking lot, campus entrance, and security upgrades.
Benedictine Military School Headmaster Fr Frank Ziemkiewicz, O.S.B., explains, "Our efforts are now focused on this conclusive, but incredibly important development which will serve many purposes, most significantly the expansion of our parking spaces from 210 to 431. A handsome new fence with brick columns and black railing will refine the entrance which has not changed much since the Seawright Drive campus originally opened in the fall of 1963. This plan, which includes a new guard house and security gate, will also greatly enhance the campus' security, its environmental endowment, and curb appeal. Beyond a doubt, this is a mammoth project. That said, we see it as critical to the safety of our Cadets, the enhanced aesthetics of the campus, and the much-needed parking expansion. It is a critical next step in the planning of a future stadium complex."
The project is scheduled to begin this summer. Thank you to the many BC families who have made this dream a reality for future generations of Cadets.
