Modernizing an existing private school to meet the demands of a progressive curriculum.

Resource Center and Science Lab
Sacred Heart Schools
Chicago, IL

Since 2009, Sacred Heart Schools has worked with Wight & Company for the development of multiple strategic facilities projects. Driven by a master plan developed by Wight & Company to establish short- and long-term goals related to planned growth from 500 to 700 students over an eight-year period, we were asked to rethink Sacred Heart’s science lab facilities to better align with progressive science instruction. 

Renovations began with the creation a resource center and science classrooms, as well as a remodeled entry lobby. Besides updated equipment and teaching technology, new finishes brighten and modernize the rooms for students. The construction was completed within a tight summer break schedule to minimize disruption to students and teachers.
