Bishop Kelly Breaks Ground For Expansion
There are few things in my life and in the Treasure Valley that I am more proud of than Bishop Kelly High School. Yes, I'm biased as an alumnus, but having been part of a community so enriched in tradition, acceptance, and success, seeing my school grow means a ton. Not only does it mean a lot to me, but it means even more to the Knights that will walk the new halls and discover new experiences and leave BK with a greater opportunity to be the change they want to see in the world.
The expansion project is an 8 million dollar project that will be the new Father Wilson Science and Technology Wing at BK. This includes 12 state of the art teaching labs for the Science, Computer Science, and Technology departments and will include a hallway expansion as well, ready to house 250 seniors with gathering space to promote BK's community feel.
My graduating class for 2012 had about 160 students, so making room for growth of graduating classes includes further space for new students to see what it means to be a Knight. Of course, financial aid remains available to those who need it. Bishop Kelly aims to make their education and community accessible to anyone, no matter household income. My attendance at BK was partially made possible by the Fr. James Wilson Scholarship, the same priest and former principal after which the new wing has been named.
