Our Invitation

Science ExteriorOver our long storied history, St. Petersburg Catholic High School has been a true home - a family - for the many students who have walked our iconic halls. From the days of St Paul's High School, Bishop Barry High School and Notre Dame Academy, through the era of the Franciscan and Salesian leadership, and up to the present, students have received the foundations of the Faith, have been taught the commandment of love, and have been given hope for their future as leaders in the St. Petersburg community and beyond.


Our mission continues to propel us forward as a school, especially as we seek to accomplish great things. Space and facilities are important to living out this mission. Our athletic fields and facilities should inspire excellence and school pride. Our administration building should be welcoming to prospective students, current families, alumni, and meet the needs of our growing school community. Our science center should house more opportunities for experiential, hands-on learning.



Most importantly, our students should be reminded of their faith as they walk from class to class, our courtyards should honor the beauty of God's creation. 


To this end, we invite you to review this case for support with us. We have discerned our capital priorities as a school community, and now we ask for your counsel and seek your support. We know that we can only accomplish our goals together. Our strength truly is in our unity of mind, vision, and action.

Barons Locker Rooms and Track

In December 2021, our locker room and track renovations were complete! We resurfaced the track, put in new fencing around the track and field, beautified the concessions area, and added brand new tables within Joe Paul Stadium to enhance the athletic experience at our home games!
The Locker Room remodel saw over 1.5 million dollars in facility enhancements! We were beyond blessed to have several leadership gifts from alumni, board members, and past & present parents, that made this possible for our students. This support of our school is a testament to the bright future that lies ahead!!


Msgr. Patrick Trainor Learning Commons

Completed February 2021:

In February 2021, we completed the renovations of the Msgr. Patrick Trainor Learning Commons! This space features a writing studio, multiple shared study spaces, a chapel, and an innovation studio for our growing engineering program!
We could not be more thankful to all who came together to make it happen! Thank you to Arc-3 Architecture for supplying the vision for the space & Hennessy Construction for making that vision a reality. Thank you to our generous benefactors Dennis & Patricia Ruppel, Patrick & Toni Walsh, Dr. & Mrs. Carlos A. Labrador, Msgr. Robert Gibbons, the O'Brien Family, and Mark & Kathryne Stalker. Without the support of these members of our Baron community this project would not have been possible. To the Diocese of St. Petersburg, thank you for your unwavering support of SPCHS and allowing us to dream big so that our students can be provided with the most excellent education possible.
