Newark Catholic High School Inspire Campaign


Newark Catholic challenges and encourages the
spiritual, intellectual, personal, cultural, social
and physical development of each student.

While the academic reputation of Newark Catholic High School has remained strong for the last 60 years, the building’s infrastructure and core academic areas are much the same as they were in 1958. Two years ago, we announced the idea for a project to enhance Newark Catholic by building a center for the arts and innovation – a physical addition to demonstrate our commitment to faith, knowledge and service – and complete our vision for the future by improving the overall learning environment, our long-term financial stability and the appearance and functionality of the campus that promotes our Catholic identity.

In a case study conducted last year we received indication of strong support for a fundraising campaign, so we are moving forward with INSPIRE – $2.6 million campaign to build a center for Performing Arts & Innovation. The construction will include a 500-seat auditorium with up-to-date technology, lighting, sound and air conditioning, a new lobby entrance to the building, a new ADA compliant bathroom accessible from the lobby, storage space and a visitor’s locker room.

With a lead gift of $500,000, and a number of additional gifts from the Newark Catholic community and beyond, we’re happy to share that we are half way to our goal! To reach the final goal we need support of the entire Newark Catholic family of alumni, parents and friends – past, present and future – as well as the community of Newark and surrounding areas.

Please consider a gift to Newark Catholic to help us achieve our vision for the future – to INSPIRE the future NC generations.
