The official groundbreaking ceremony took place on April 20 for a renovation project that will accommodate an expanded early education program at Central Catholic School, one of the Notre Dame ACE Academies owned by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and operated in partnership with Notre Dame Alliance for Catholic Education. Central Catholic preschool students from the Class of 2032 donned shovels to officially help initiate this project.
The expansion will allow for much-needed classroom space that will enable the opportunity to support early learning programming for 3- and 4-year-olds, make full use of the existing 4-year-old classroom for STEM and resource support, and provide necessary safety measures that include more secure building access and safer arrival/dismissal procedures.
Shea Family Charities, parent company of the local Shea Kiewit Joint Venture affiliate responsible for the Dig Indy underground tunnel project, generously donated $500,000 toward this major renovation, along with individual donor support. The Shea donation places the appeal within $50,000 of the total project goal.
