Progress seen in school construction project

The long-awaited construction of a new Administration Building at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic School in Naples is making remarkable progress.

In just a few short months of work, the foundation was excavated and built, while the first walls have already been raised.

This new 1,971-square-foot building will free up much-needed classroom space, house a clinic, conference room, administrative offices and essential services, and most importantly, provide a secure single point of entry. The existing administrative offices have been operating out of a second-floor classroom since Hurricane Irma caused significant damage to the school in 2017.

Founded in 1981, St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic School has been experiencing rapid growth to the current enrollment of 305 students, while at the same time upgrading existing facilities and adding others along the way. The larger expansion project began with the addition of two permanent portable classrooms as well as the creation of an “Arts Center.”

“This is our time,” stated Principal Maria Niebuhr. “Our moment to advance, to continue to expand and improve while staying true to our core values.”

This project is a reality thanks to the incredible generosity of parents, area Parishes and parishioners, donors, and sponsors, explained Gina Groch, Seton Communications Director.
