From the President

We are enhancing our unique hilltop setting, a signature asset, by creating the optimal learning environment for our students. In 2016, we remodeled the Mozilo Family Center for the Arts. We are now in the homestretch of Vision for Veritas II, which will expand and complete the Mozilo Family Center for the Arts. I invite you to join the forward looking and generous donors who have already given. Our promise to you is that we will support the passions of our students, putting extraordinary resources at their disposal so they may discover their passions and unlock their limitless potential to positively impact the world.

Sister Carolyn McCormack, O.P.
President
I deeply believe we are here to do more than just reap the rewards that others have sowed and provided for us. I believe we have responsibility to give as was given to us in order to demonstrate our love for this school and the amazing impact it has and will have on our children’s lives.
—Dennis Maguire (Emily ‘07, Katie ‘09, Annie ‘12 and Maggie ‘18), Vision for Veritas I Donor

About Vision for Veritas I & II

Over the course of the last two decades we have been modernizing our 60-year old facilities to provide students with the optimal 21st-century learning environment. The first three phases of the Master Plan—the Student Activities Center (SAC), the Arts Center remodel and six renovated high school classrooms—have had a profound and transformational impact on our programs and stand as proof that where we learn significantly influences how we learn. We are now in the homestretch of our $7.4 million Vision for Veritas II campaign.

We successfully completed Phase I of the Arts Center remodel in 2016. The expansion phase will unite the arts classrooms currently dispersed throughout the campus under one roof and includes:

NORTH SIDE OF BUILDING 

  • New dance studio 
  • New music/choral classroom 
  • New theatre classroom 
  • New stagecraft room 

SOUTH SIDE OF BUILDING 

  • New 2D art classroom 
  • New and expanded 3D art classroom

Center for the Arts Remodel

The first phase of the Arts Center, with its new stage for the arts and a 3D art classroom, moved our visual and performing arts program quantum leaps ahead.
    • Built in 1956 as a "gymnasium-auditorium," it housed everything from theatre productions to basketball practice and had never been renovated.

Expanding the Mozilo Family Center for the Arts

With the exception of 3D Art, our visual and performing arts classrooms are spread throughout the campus. The expansion of the Arts Center will unite all visual and performing arts instruction under one roof. Having these classrooms together will enable organic collaboration and cross-disciplinary engagement by both students and teachers.

The new facilities will inspire more students to participate in the arts where they can develop a stronger sense of individualism, self-reflection and self-esteem.
