Pope Francis Preparatory School Wins Outstanding Project Award

We’re thrilled to announce that Pope Francis Preparatory School has been recognized in the Spring 2020 Learning By Design Architectural Award Showcase with an Outstanding Project Award! The awards program honors excellence in education design and construction, showcasing the nation’s most engaging and enriching learning environments.

Pope Francis Preparatory School is a new 450-student, 117,000-square-foot facility that unites Cathedral and Mount Holyoke High Schools as one learning community. This new school was constructed on the site of the former Cathedral High School, which was destroyed by a tornado in 2011.

Designed as a 21st-Century learning community, this new facility was designed to foster experiential and collaborative learning for STEM and Arts curricula (STEAM). Using an open plan, the design of this school is based on visibility and transparency across discipline and function.
