Celebrating its 55th year, St. Bernard High School in Playa del Rey is slated to receive a variety of renovations beginning this summer.
Funded by contributions from several Catholic benefactors, the major upgrades will include improved wireless Internet service, an expanded guidance center and student union, a new multipurpose room and library, a research/computer lab and new paint and lighting throughout the campus, school officials said.
Other features include a new student lounge, where students can study, read, and catch up with friends before, during, and after school. It will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
In addition, the new College Center will allow students to meet with admission officers from around the country and will be located at the center of the academic hallways.
Community meetings on the campus renovations with principal Cynthia Hoepner are scheduled at 4 p.m. Monday, April 15; 2.15 p.m. Friday, April 19; 6 p.m. Monday, April 22; and 4 p.m. Monday, April 29. Space is limited at the April 15 and April 29 meetings.
