Learning and Living the Good News: Fostering Academic Success for All Students

Cornerstone Capital Campaign

When Our Lady Queen of Heaven Parish was established in 1958, the founders were deeply committed to providing a quality Catholic education for its people. They were successful in their efforts, and nearly 60 years later, we are the beneficiaries of their legacy.The Cornerstone Capital Campaign is a visionary effort to prepare Our Lady Queen of Heaven School for its next generation of students.

The goals of the Campaign were to create:
  • A unified campus, with all the students of the school together on the west side of Creole Street.
  • A brand-new 26,500-square-foot middle school building.
  • Renovations to existing school buildings with grade-levels relocated.
  • A brand-new, self-contained Early Childhood Center campus on the east side of Creole Street
Where are we today...

Phases I and II of the Campaign included the construction of the new middle school building and the renovation of existing classrooms that now house the pre-k, kindergarten and 4th grade. The goal for phases I and II was $3.5 million, and due to the great generosity of the OLQH school and church community, that goal was met at the end of 2014.
 

In the spring of 2016 Phase III of the Campaign was completed, the construction of the new Early Childhood Center. The new Center is 6,000 square feet, which includes eight classrooms, an activity room, administration area and two playground areas. The cost of construction for phase III is $1.4 million. Our campaign continues to raise funds for this phase of the campaign.
