On January 6, 2012, the archdiocese of Philadelphia announced that Conwell-Egan Catholic High School, the only Catholic high school in Lower Bucks County, would permanently close at the end of the 2011-2012 school year.
Conwell-Egan Catholic Appealed the decision, raising funds and generating a solid business plan enabling them to move forward. On February 24, nearly 7 weeks after the closing announcement, Archbishop Chaput announced that CEC would remain open with the creation of the Faith in the Future Foundation.
The administrators at Conwell-Egan have now engaged the services of Habeeb & Associates Architects to aid them in the next logical step for revitalization of Conwell-Egan Catholic, the generation of a Master Plan. Since little has been able to be done to the building since its’ construction in 1967, the Master Plan will review all interior and exterior spaces for potential upgrades and modifications. It will generate practical facility options that will not only support the desired educational program, but that will also transform the facility into an uplifting and engaging environment for the students, parents, and staff.
H&A is grateful for the confidence the administration and board has placed in us in guiding them through this phase of their recovery.
