The Justin E. Rawlins STEAM Center

The Vision

“How we educate the mind will change with the times; how we cultivate the heart is and will remain timeless."

When Blessed Basil Moreau, the visionary founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, articulated these insightful words in the 19th century, he couldn't have foreseen the dynamic evolution of education. At Notre Dame High School, we bring his vision to life by actively seeking innovative ways to engage our students through cutting-edge technologies, delivering a top-notch educational experience.

The recently inaugurated STEAM Center is a testament to this commitment. STEAM, encompassing Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math education, has evolved into an integral element of a comprehensive education, equipping students for higher education and the challenges of life. With the state-of-the-art STEAM facility, NDHS students are immersing themselves in hands-on learning experiences, transforming their creativity and ingenuity into tangible solutions that benefit their career path and the community.

A Holy Cross Education places a strong emphasis on building a better society, and a STEAM-centered approach plays a pivotal role in this mission. By fostering teamwork skills, students gain invaluable experience working collaboratively in a disciplined environment to affect positive change through technology applications. The fusion of teamwork skills and STEAM expertise ensures that our students are adept at leveraging technology to collaboratively address challenges, ultimately improving the lives of those in their community today and in the future.

At NDHS, the STEAM center is not merely a facility; it's a hub where students are actively engaged, achieving remarkable feats, and embodying the spirit of innovation inspired by Blessed Basil Moreau's enduring vision.

Be a Part of This Upcoming Project

There are many ongoing expenses to operating and maintaining a STEAM center. This includes the costs for supplies, consumable materials, tools, equipment maintenance, equipment repair, replacement components, and staffing. Part of our plan is to build an endowment to provide for ongoing expenses. Naming opportunities at various levels will be available. The ultimate goal would be for the cost of maintaining and operating the STEAM center to be fully covered in perpetuity by an endowment.
