Canisius High School will introduce its new $15.5 million expansion to its family, friends and neighbors at the school's "Family Celebration," on Sunday, October 4th.
A Mass will kick off the day at 10AM in the school's auditorium, with a continental breakfast at 11AM in the brand new Bernard J. Kennedy Field House. Self-guided tours of the new facilities will follow.
"The recent improvements to our campus have generated such a great response from our students and staff that we wanted to share them with our extended family," said Canisius High School President John Knight. "We're really proud of what we have here and thought the best way for others to really know what we've got going on is to see it for themselves."
The Bernard J. Kennedy Field House and the new Montante Academic Hall are large pieces of Canisius High School's "Ensuring Our Legacy Campaign," the most ambitious expansion of the campus since the school moved from Washington Street in 1944. The campaign is a multi-phase effort to support facility improvements, enhance student services and build the school's endowment.
Canisius High School, located in the city of Buffalo, is a Catholic, Jesuit, independent college preparatory school serving young men of diverse backgrounds from Western New York. Canisius promotes the development of students through a comprehensive liberal arts curriculum firmly rooted in the Jesuit tradition of education, spirituality and service.
