Makerspace & Science Wing Upgrades

Did You Know That...

25% of Bishop Ahr graduates enter a science-related field? This would not be the case if it weren't for our excellent science courses and electives but we're not going to rest on our laurels. To that end, we are in the midst of a $2 million project that will enable us to provide state-of-the art science classrooms and labs, as well as a collaborative Makerspace that will enhance students’ opportunities to pursue the study of robotics, forensics, and engineering.

Our work has begun already, thanks to a generous $560,000 donation from the Rasweiler family and the first phase of this project has already been completed.
