Innovations for Our Future

Expanding our commitment to an exceptional learning environment

The Innovation Center is a symbol of what is to come and a marker of Cathedral’s academic preeminence in Indianapolis.

Our premier facility will push Cathedral to the forefront of education with a space that not only promotes interdisciplinary learning and exploration but also captivate our students with an enhanced academic approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). Our students only have one chance at a high school experience that will prepare them to thrive. As technology continues to drive our world, students need the best educational options in the fields of engineering, computer programming, robotics, science, and design. Our facility will have a science center and makerspace that provides the flexibility for instruction as well as a lab experience that parallels the space and thinking of companies like Eli Lilly, Roche, Google, and Apple. In accordance with our vision to be the Catholic high school of the future, Cathedral’s Innovation Center uniquely positions us to educate students in transformational ways, unlike any other school in the area.
