The structure is an instant landmark because of its soaring, triumphant, cantilevered slanted glass façade, a grand staircase – bathed in floor-to-ceiling natural light – features dozens of benches to foster gathering places for students to bond and exchange ideas. The modern building houses St. Brendan’s four academies: STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), Law and Global Business, Medical Sciences, and Visual and Performing Arts. An elite university-caliber facility on a high school campus, the structure also has space for administration and student services.
The two-story, 24,000-SF St. Brendan High School Innovation Center marks the first significant addition to the campus since it opened in 1975. Abundant natural light, free-flowing interior design and open space creates an environment not just for learning, but for social, cultural and intellectual commerce.
