It’s been nearly 20 years since the last major upgrade to our facilities in Colonial.

With an expanding competitive market, a growing need to serve our community and a demand for facilities to serve today’s student body.

WHY do we need to do this?

We want every aspect of Colonial Nation to be a source of pride. Restoring, updating and improving the buildings and facilities in Colonial is a necessary step to fully realizing the Power of WE and showing all of our students that they deserve safe, functional, high quality spaces.

 

WE NEED TO ADAPT

Show our staff, community and students that we are as innovative in our facilities as we are our in our curriculum.

WE NEED TO RESTORE

Update and repair our buildings to give our students, staff families and community a school they will be proud of and want to learn in.

WE NEED TO UPGRADE

Build state of the art athletics facilities to give us as a competitive edge in the state of Delaware and bring championship sports to our schools.

We want every aspect of Colonial Nation to be a source of pride.

Restoring, updating and improving the buildings and facilities in Colonial is a necessary step to fully realizing the Power of WE and showing all of our students that they deserve safe, functional, high quality spaces.
