School Year Opens with New Student Center

DePaul Cristo Rey began the 2019-20 school year on August 28 with a brand new Student Center, a new academic leadership team, and the start of construction on the final phase of its campus transformation. Here's a look at day one. 

The new Student Center houses:

  • The Linda and Harry Fath Gymnasium
  • The Bruin Café and Kitchen
  • The Ann and Harry Santen Performing Arts Space
  • The Bruin Fitness Center
  • Women’s, Men’s and Visitors’ Locker Rooms
  • Athletic Offices
  • Athletic Trainer’s Room
  • Campus Ministry Office

The Student Center was completed this summer during phase one of the school’s campus transformation plan funded by the successful Building. Futures. Together. For a Greater Cincinnati Capital Campaign. That campaign raised $20.8 million which is also funding the construction now underway of a new three-story academic building. That building is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.

The new school year begins under the direction of a new Academic Leadership Team: Principal Paul Ebert, Assistant Principal/Dean of Academics Ms. Katie Hoekzema and Ms. Dionne Partee, Assistant Principal/Dean of Student Life.
