The Moving Forward in Faith capital campaign launched in 2012 after a collaborative planning process led by the Kearney Catholic High School Foundation Board, School Board, and pastors/lay leaders of St. James and Prince of Peace.
By 2013, Kearney Catholic received over $2.1 million in pledges and gifts to the campaign, which resulted in retiring $1.28 million in debt from previous building projects and building two new science classrooms by the 2013-2014 school year. In 2015, Phase II of the Moving Forward in Faith Capital Campaign received more than $1.5 million in gifts and pledges. That support enabled us to continue adding the much needed enhancements to our facilities which will benefit current and future generations of Kearney Catholic students.
Six new classrooms were built in the summer 2016. Thank you! In 2017, the heating and cooling system was replaced and a sprinkler system continues to be installed in the original school structure!
With our improved financial position and upgraded facilities, we are already seeing returns on these investments into the student's faith based education. Our KCHS students are excelling in the classroom, on the playing field, on stage and in the community. The additions to the school have helped to ensure the faith formation of our young people, which will have a far reaching and positive affect on our community.
The last of the Moving Forward in Faith is here! Kearney Catholic High School is continuing its commitment to excelelnce through the continuation of the Moving Forward in Faith Capital Campaign.
Demolition has begun! The final Phase projects including adding a chapel and remodeling and expanding the foyer and administrative offices! Kearney Catholic has always maintained an excellent, faith based academic curriculum and this final project is furthering the school's commitment to its students now and for generations to come. The chapel and remodel/expansion will be an attractive, safe and functional gateway to the school and provide wonderful aesthetics that will match the educational excellence that is part of the school's mission.
Once again, thank you for everyone's input and support. It takes a great amount of faith, effort and prayer to reach our goals, but with your help we will undoubtedly strengthen the foundation of our Kearney Catholic community and provide a quality, Catholic education for Kearney area youth at Kearney Catholic. Please help us to continue sharing the mission of Kearney Catholic with future generations of students. Donate today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 308-236-6903. Thank you!
