The Faith. Family. Future! Campaign started in 2014 with a desire to advance our vision to form empowered leaders, inspired by the Gospel, transforming the world. Our mission to educate the hearts and minds of students by giving them the resources and physical spaces necessary to become the next generation of scientists, innovators, engineers, health care professionals, thought leaders, recording artists, and entrepreneurs led us to imagine a bold future that drew on our inspirational past. Our desire to build a better tomorrow for our future Mustangs led us to dream of a space that would become the new front door to our campus that would also grace them with a world of opportunities. Anchored in legacy and inspired by hope, this building and its adjoining outdoor spaces would lead to the transformation of our school, the surrounding neighborhood, and the wider Prince George’s County community.
Today, this bold vision is becoming a reality. The building of the La Reine Science & Innovation Center commences shortly. This is a significant milestone marker. As we initiate the construction of this 20,000 square foot space and the adjacent Legacy Courtyard, which will be an eco-friendly outdoor space plush with lovely communal gathering places that will honor the Brothers of Holy Cross and the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters, reaching this point has been made possible only through the generosity of thousands of family and friends of Bishop McNamara and La Reine High Schools. We want to thank everyone who has partnered with us and shared our dreams. Your partnership with us throughout this journey has been integral to the success of the Faith. Family. Future! Campaign. We could not have gotten to this point without you. Thank you! Your commitment is the reason that the La Reine Science & Innovation Center at Bishop McNamara High School is about to come to life!
Thank you to The A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation for their generous $1,000,000 donation
The La Reine Science & Innovation Center will be a game changer, not only for Bishop McNamara students, but for the Prince George’s County community as a whole. We know that STEM education is critical to ensuring our young people can compete professionally after high school.
