Spirit of Excellence

The Spirit of Excellence campaign is a transformative initiative to complete our campus, investing in the future of our school, our community, and future generations of Crusaders.

Helias Catholic High School is embarking on a project to complete our campus master plan, bringing all school facilities onto one central campus and strengthening our school’s ability to continue providing an excellent Catholic education that inspires students’ development in mind, body, and spirit for future generations of Crusaders.

The Spirit of Excellence campaign seeks to construct a new performing arts center and on-site baseball and softball complex on the Helias Catholic campus, as well as additional space in Rackers Fieldhouse.

The performing arts center will include an auditorium with seating for up to 1,000, suitable for large school events and available for community use, including by Helias Catholic’s local Catholic parish partner schools. The performing arts center will include academic and performance spaces for instrumental and vocal music, theater, and dance, with a visitor lobby overlooking the baseball and softball complex.

The baseball and softball complex will offer capacity for up to 1,000 spectators with facilities including a press box, concessions and restrooms. After the Crusader Athletic Complex brought home Helias Catholic’s football, soccer, tennis, and track and field programs, this new facility will bring home the Crusader baseball and softball programs and eliminate the need for student-athletes to travel across town for practices and home games. Expanding Rackers Fieldhouse will update athletic locker and wrestling rooms as well as strength and conditioning facilities, benefiting all of Helias Catholic’s student-athletes.

We plan to break ground on the project in 2024, with the fieldhouse addition to be completed in 2025 and performing arts center and baseball and softball complex in 2026. Completing this final phase of our campus master plan is a roughly $30 million investment in the future of Helias Catholic and our community. Combined with contributions from the 2015 Rooted in Faith, Building on Excellence campaign and additional funds pledged toward the project, the Spirit of Excellence campaign seeks to raise a total of $14 million between new donations and generous committed support from The Foundation for the Benefit of Helias Catholic High School up to $7 million.
