Lincroft, NJ – Christian Brothers Academy took a major step towards the newest round of campus upgrades on Saturday, May 15.
The Academy held its ceremonial groundbreaking for multiple new facilities, as part of the ongoing Forever CBA: Securing Our Mission capital campaign.
“Since the founding of CBA in 1959, building and enhancing the academic, athletic, and cultural facilities has always been an important part of our strategic planning,” said President Brother Frank Byrne, FSC ’75. “The campus plan at CBA has always been ‘in motion’ so that we can build and enhance the facilities in order to meet the needs of our students.”
The ceremony was held in between two buildings that will be reconstructed – the Round Barn and McKenna Hall. The new buildings will be built in the same footprint of the soon-to-be demolished structures.
Over 100 alumni, parents, and supporters were present at the ceremony, as they celebrated the upcoming construction and over $11 million raised in the Forever CBA campaign. With a goal of $12 million, over $6 million dollars will be allocated for facilities upgrades. The remaining funds will help grow CBA’s scholarship offerings and school endowment, which currently stands at over $30 million.
