Academy of the Holy Names President Art Raimo announced the public phase of the Academy Ascending capital campaign at the school’s annual Blessed Marie Rose dinner. To date, the school has raised $9 million in the silent phase of the campaign. The total goal is $12 million.
The new learning space will allow our students to be more engaged and will help the teachers think about curriculum differently.
The Center features a 350-seat theatre and a state-of-the-art teaching and learning environment. The new facility provides a dedicated space for the arts, allowing the school to enhance its offerings and honor the Sister of the Holy Names’ longstanding devotion to art, music and theatre.
President Art Raimo announced at the Black and White By the Bay auction that Academy parents Barbara and Anthony Scarpo have contributed $1.35 million to the Academy Ascending campaign.
The Academy is pleased to present a virtual tour of our new middle school, set to open in August 2017. The building is a culmination of six years of preparation and the next phase of the facilities master plan.
The Holy Names Heritage Center, which is adjacent to the Chapel of Blessed Marie Rose Durocher, features four galleries. Current exhibits include the history of the Sisters in Tampa, Sacred Heart Academy, school uniforms through the years, and the other schools the Sisters have run through the years.
The Academy's new SYKES Innovation Lab, built from a generous $250,000 gift from Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated, was recently unveiled at a special dedication ceremony.
With the evident success and popularity of the first Innovation Lab, the Academy is developing a second iLab for the 2015-2016 school year.
Although Academy Ascending is still in its quiet phase, already the campaign is receiving significant contributions! At a recent campaign event held at Ulele restaurant, two major gifts were announced.
