Notre Dame Preparatory Academy (NDPMA) today broke ground on a new $7.5-million science, art, and technology wing at its Pontiac campus.
The addition, designed by Bloomfield Hills-based TMP Architecture, will span 26,000 square feet and will open in fall 2018. The one-story facility will connect to the present shared middle and upper division wings and offer science-laboratory facilities, collaborative-learning classrooms, a robotics lab, a greenhouse, and a fine arts studio.
Since March, the Academy has raised more than $5.5 million for the project.
“When we look at our school, we’ve always tried to be on the cutting edge. The academic program we want to have here now is not to make an education for people living in today’s world, but we want one that is designed for generations to come,” says Fr. Leon Olszamowski, corporate president of the Academy.
“This groundbreaking and what will follow are yet more positive steps toward ensuring that we have the educational programs necessary for those future students.”
