New restrooms will be ready for the 2022-2023 school year.
After listening to student input and consulting with architects, Duchesne Academy unveiled renderings for new, remodeled restrooms in its historic campus. The capital improvements on floors one, two, and, three are part of its A Bold Step Forward campaign and are scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the new school year in August 2022.
The designs call for new fixtures, flooring, updated plumbing, and paint. The spaces will be inviting and honor the history and aesthetic of the historic campus. The new restrooms will include two items that students say they like: full-length mirrors and a place where they can leave positive messages for classmates. Updated restrooms are a priority area. In some areas, the restroom fixtures pre-date the closing of Duchesne College.
A Bold Step Forward is the largest campaign in Duchesne’s history. It will secure the future of Sacred Heart education in Omaha for generations to come by growing the school’s endowment, providing for greater classroom technology integration, and by preserving and expanding the campus.
Construction on the improved restrooms will begin following graduation and is scheduled to be completed prior to the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
The projects scheduled to begin Summer 2022 are:
- The Chapel preservation
- The Auditorium renovation and enhancement
- Restrooms renovation (scheduled competition August 2022)
The construction schedule for A Bold Step Forward’s other capital improvement projects is contingent on fundraising.
