The skyline at the EHS campus reveals positive changes as the steel beams are erected for the new 25,700-square-foot Underwood Student Center. Key features of this building will include: a large dining hall and server with double the seating capacity of our former space, two state-of-the art innovation classrooms, a performance stage, a coffee bar and an art gallery. The construction project, which is funded through generous donations to the school, is on time and on budget and will open in the Fall 2018.

This building is the second building of a $80 million multi-phased campus master plan which includes the Hildebrand Athletic Center, the new Underwood Student Center, a new Visual and Performing Arts Building, a new Benitez Chapel and field improvements.

Just over 50 percent of our ambitious goal has been raised to date; fundraising is ongoing for this important effort.
