play your part.

The Expanding the Vision, Honoring the Tradition Capital Campaign is underway to make a dream a reality. Together, we can create a much-needed space for the visual and performing arts that reflects the values and depths of the Catholic community and the CCHS experience.

Expanding the Vision.

The new fine arts center will serve not only as a place for learning and growth for our high school students, but also as a place for educational programs and performances for our elementary and middle school students. In addition, this state-of-the-art building will offer tremendous opportunity for our entire Catholic community to gather.


Honoring the Tradition.

We are excited about this next chapter in the history of our Catholic community. Our tradition of great community support has led directly to our growth and success.


Realizing the Vision.

Combined with the MACS Capital Fee contribution of $15 million, reaching the $8 million Campaign Goal will provide a total investment of $23 million.

This will complete both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Fine Arts Center construction!

Expansion Details

Our buildings should inspire all that happens inside them. Together, we can create a space for the visual and performing arts that reflects the values and depths of the Catholic community and the CCHS experience. When our fine arts classes relocate to the new building, existing spaces in the current school building will be freed up. These spaces will be renovated for classroom use and for athletics. Plans include a new Weight Room, a new Wrestling Room, and classrooms for teachers who currently do not have them.


new fine arts center

The new Fine Arts Center will feature a 650-seat auditorium and a high-quality performance and exhibit space for all MACS students. It will also house two art studios and a band room, broadcast studio, ceramics studio, dance studio, dark room and digital lab, photography lab, stage and theater.

Renovation of Athletic Spaces

Charlotte Catholic High School’s performing arts classes will move allowing for a larger weight room with new equipment, a new wrestling room, multipurpose warm-up space adjacent to the gym, an aerobics room, and a health classroom that also can be used as a film room.

Repurposing of existing classroom spaces

Visual arts classes will move to the new building, allowing for repurposing of those spaces into much needed classroom space.  Every CCHS teacher will have his or her own classroom, restoring the lost instructional time that occurs when teachers float between classrooms.
