BUILDING ON FAITH
With much anticipation, the Billings Catholic Schools Foundation is pleased to announce plans to construct a new K-8 school on the property located at Colton Blvd. and Woody Dr. The school will be new, but the values of the Catholic Schools will remain the same – to provide an education based on faith, family spirit, and academic excellence for its roughly 1000 students. If all goes as planned, when the school bell rings in the fall of 2017, BCS students – grades K through 8 – will be walking through the doors of a brand new school.
This new school will address a long list of needs including the lack of classroom space due to increasing enrollment, increased safety measures, and the opportunity for state of the art technology. It will eliminate transporting students between buildings for extracurricular classes, be energy efficient, alleviate overcrowding, and provide the schools an opportunity for growth.
We are not done with our fundraising efforts. We have raised over 13 million dollars and need another 4 million to finish the project. The plan until more funding is obtained is to build the entire school. All the academic spaces will be complete, but the gym and locker rooms will only be a shell.
Please join us in our efforts. It will take all of us coming together to get this done.
