This year, Saint Rita School is excited to announce A THREE-YEAR plan to modernize, beautify, and customize our school campus and buildings. This 3-year project totals more than $300,000. After completion of this three-year plan, Saint Rita School will celebrate 75 YEARS of quality, Catholic education (1949-2024) with a modern school campus for modern day students.
As we evolve, our school should, too.
PHASE 1 (2022) UPDATE: Replace lights and install new drop ceilings in Middle School classrooms; replace flooring in Middle School classrooms; paint Middle School classrooms; update the electrical grid in our Primary building. (Wiring in the 1940's and 50's wasn't made for copiers, scanners, POS, ActivPanels, laptops, Chromebooks, microwaves, and more. Our electrical grid needs a bit of a facelift!)
PHASE 2 (2023) MODERNIZE: Replace student desks and chairs in Middle School classrooms; update landscaping at Middle School entrance; create new outdoor elements to personalize the campus including signage, awnings, lampposts, seating, and more.
PHASE 3 (2024) BEAUTIFY: Create a new outdoor classroom with flexible seating options for the school and parish communities to use for learning and exploration.
Update. Modernize. Beautify. Prepare us for another 75 years.

PHASE 1: UPDATE THE CLASSROOMS
Before: A classroom built for the 1950s. Old tile flooring and tile ceiling with limited florescent lighting and limited electrical outlets for ActivPanels and Chromebooks. 25 year-old desks and chairs.
After: A classroom with new lights, ceilings, flooring, paint, and electrical grid. New flexible seating options that meet the standards of a 21st century student.
PHASE 2: CREATE A NEW ENTRYWAY
Before: An entrance hidden by mature trees and one that lacks dimension, softness, and warmth.
After: An entrance that exudes school spirit, has dimensional layers of functionality and design, and welcomes generations of Falcons to come!
PHASE 3: CREATE AN OUTDOOR LEARNING SPACE
Before: An area of grass surrounded by mature trees without any functional seating or purpose.
After: An outdoor classroom/amphitheater built to accommodate multiple classes and create additional space for learning, exploration, and parish functions.
Saint Rita School is a Blue Ribbon School in northeast Ohio. Since 1949, we have been providing exceptional education in a faith-filled environment. We proudly educate students in preschool through grade 8. Saint Rita School instills Catholic morals by developing the whole child to know, love, and live in faith while empowering our students academically, creatively, and emotionally to achieve success in the global community.
In 2020 and 2021, Saint Rita School made huge improvements to our facilities, including a new state-of-the-art gymnasium, new permanent cafeteria, new permanent space in our Little Falcon Learning Center Preschool, and new STEM Lab. Please help us in our continual efforts to modernize our school buildings and campus so that we are in a position to educate 21st century students with high-quality instruction in modern facilities and a faith-filled environment.
