Montini Catholic is proud to unveil our newly renovated library and resource center, The Ed and Pam Mack Learning Resource Center (LRC). The area has undergone a major reimagining and now consists of an academic commons, group collaboration areas and meeting spaces in addition to an existing computer center and student study areas. "This transformation provides a more flexible, collaborative, and attractive learning space allowing students to better engage with one another," said President Jim Segredo.
Over the last 10 years, Montini Catholic has invested over $13,000,000 in campus
improvement and equipment. "We are quite proud to have been able to keep campus
enhancements moving forward, despite the setbacks experienced by all from the Covid 19
crisis," added President Segredo. "Last year we added our state of the art Kazma Innovation Center, and we were happy to be able to continue to move forward with our plans this year."
"We've totally redesigned the front area of the LRC to establish an academic commons, equipped with new comfortable furniture for individual student and collaborative learning and four computer stations," said President Segredo. "We've also established a private area for students wanting a quiet spot for studying."
The central area of Montini's LRC has been redesigned to provide two spaces for group collaborative work and a large meeting space was also added to the design. The school's computer center now provides 28 computer stations for individual and group work. "A seventy-inch monitor was also added, along with two white boards, to assist teachers using the area for classroom instruction and presentations." In addition, the school provided a Media Room for students to work on video presentations and other multimedia projects.
"We have been very excited to watch the progress of our new LRC taking shape over the summer," said Principal Kevin Beirne. "We are proud to be able to provide an environment for students and teachers to interact in new and exciting ways. From the diverse seating and working areas to the bleeding edge collaboration lab, students now have a space that not only allows for learning, but enhances that learning."
Montini's Student Services area and Womens' Locker Room areas also received renovation attention this summer. The school's auditorium, which underwent a facelift in 2007, is currently undergoing major renovations and will be presented to our Bronco community later this fall.
“It’s the people in our school community who make it such a wonderful place to teach and learn. Still, these hard working scholars and incredibly dedicated teachers deserve top notch facilities to engage in while teaching and learning," added Principal Beirne. "We are proud of our summer/fall campus enhancements and how they’ve added to what was already an ideal setting for student engagement."
