School launches capital campaign

Calvert Hall aims to raise $7.5 million for tuition endowment, new building


Calvert Hall College High School officials are hoping to raise $7.5 million over the next five years to pay for a four-story academic building and to fund an endowment for tuition assistance at the 32-acre campus in Towson.

The capital campaign, called Calvert Hall Forever, got under way last night at a reception in the Alumni Memorial Gymnasium.

It is the school's largest single fund-raising effort, said Brother Kevin Stanton, school president.

Stanton said $1 million would be used to establish a tuition assistance endowment and the rest would pay for the planned 40,000-square-foot building to house classrooms, a library, media center, computer labs, television and art studios, and an activities center.

The new structure will free part of the existing building for additional office and administrative space, and extracurricular activities, Stanton said.

Plans call for construction to begin in July of next year. The building should be ready for occupancy by September 2004, Stanton said.

In 1999, the school completed and dedicated a new stadium, upgraded sports facilities and expanded parking at the school.

Calvert Hall is an all-boys, college-preparatory high school with 1,100 students enrolled in grades nine through 12.
