In the Home Stretch: Our Final Project

The Forward, Always Forward Capital Campaign, which publicly began in August 2014, is quickly approaching its conclusion. With $17.1 million presently in cash and pledges, fundraising for the final project is underway - security, parking, and campus entrance.

The entrance to our school has remained the same since we opened the Seawright Drive campus 57 years agoA handsome new fence with brick columns and black aluminum railing will refine the entrance to our campus and bolster our security. The old parking lot will be demolished and a brand new one will expand our available parking from 210 to over 400 spacesThese projects will also provide much-needed curb appeal and properly reflect the image and reputation of Benedictine Military School. 

The Forward, Always Forward Capital Campaign has become the largest fundraising effort in school history. It was built on a foundation of financial stability adding no long-term debt to the school.

 

The Final Project: Security, Parking, and Campus Entrance

Can you image driving up to Benedictine Military School with a brand new entrance way and a freshly paved parking area? A handsome black iron fence with stately brick columns will welcome you to campus. These much-needed improvements will greatly enhance our security and properly reflect the history and traditions of Benedictine. Beautiful green spaces, trees, curbing, and even some semi-permeable brick pavers will signify the bright future on Seawright Drive.

“Forward, always forward, everywhere forward! We must not be held back by debts, bad years, or by difficulties of the times. Man’s adversity is God’s opportunity.”
