St. Stanislaus Kicks Off Expansion Plans, Capital Campaign

The St. Stanislaus campus will soon be feeling some growing pains.

The school broke ground Tuesday on a new $3 million fitness center. It was also the kick-off of a major capital improvement campaign. Over the next seven years school leaders hope to spend more than $10 million building and expanding school facilities. Future plans include a new fine arts center.

"Our goal is to try to build a future of character for our students," school principal Ronald Hingle said. "As you know, St. Stanislaus is the oldest educational institution on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We're 147 years old this year, and we're very proud to kick off a capital campaign to help build for the future."

Construction on the new fitness center will begin this summer.
