Clearwater Central Catholic High School has begun construction on a $15 million project to replace three of the oldest buildings on campus with five new buildings providing more than 53,000 square feet of space.

The improvements will include 24 classrooms; a Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, a free-standing chapel, a leadership center and a football field house. The project also will enhance security and energy efficiency on the campus. It will be funded by the Ignite Tomorrow, Today capital campaign, which kicks off at 10 a.m. Tuesday with a blessing ceremony and farewell to the Notre Dame building — the first structure to be demolished — presided over by Bishop Gregory Parkes of the Diocese of St. Petersburg and CCC president John A. Venturella.

The public is invited to attend the celebration in the school's courtyard, which will be followed by a complimentary lunch. To RSVP, contact Associate Director of Advancement Beth Lani at blani@ccchs.org. The project will be accomplished in four phases through January 2020.
