On Jan. 28 Bishop Shanahan High School in Downingtown unveiled a new $3 million fundraising campaign called Soaring to New Heights.

The Chester County school says the campaign aims to address its strategic plans to renovate and update several different areas of campus including the former Media Center, tennis courts, gymnasium, art room, choral and instrumental spaces, and outdoor recreational space.

“The time has come for Bishop Shanahan High School to provide the resources and tools for students to unlock their potential, empowering them to Soar to New Heights,” said Robert Moran, Bishop Shanahan’s Principal.

Moran added that the initiative “will launch the school into a new era of enhancements, supporting students now and into the future.”

The most prominent change coming to the Shanahan campus will be the conversion of the former Media Center, Computer Resource Lab, and a portion of an academic wing, into the IHM Center for Innovation and Creativity, a STEM Makerspace, according to the school.

“Our world badly needs leaders who know the meaning of community, understand the value of service, and possess the creativity to solve tomorrow’s challenges,” Shanahan President Rev. John E. Donia said.

“This campaign allows us to continue meaningful educational and formational programs, and to continue the great legacy of forming ‘People of God; People for Others.’”

The school will host an informational open house Thurs., Feb 1 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for those looking to learn more about Soaring to New Heights plans.
