Canisius High School Unveils New Field House

Canisius High School
will introduce its new $15.5 million expansion to its family, friends and
neighbors at the school’s “Family Celebration,” on Sunday, October 4th.


A Mass will kick off
the day at 10AM in the school’s auditorium, with a continental breakfast at
11AM in the brand new Bernard J. Kennedy Field House. Self-guided tours of
the new facilities will follow.


“The recent
improvements to our campus have generated such a great response from our
students and staff that we wanted to share them with our extended family,” said
Canisius High School President John Knight. “We’re really proud of what we have
here and thought the best way for others to really know what we’ve got going on
is to see it for themselves.” 


The Bernard J. Kennedy
Field House and the new Montante Academic Hall are large pieces of Canisius
High School’s “Ensuring Our Legacy Campaign,” the most ambitious expansion of
the campus since the school moved from Washington Street in 1944. The campaign
is a multi-phase effort to support facility improvements, enhance student services
and build the school’s endowment.


Canisius High School,
located in the city of Buffalo, is a Catholic, Jesuit, independent college
preparatory school serving young men of diverse backgrounds from Western New
York. Canisius promotes the development of students through a comprehensive
liberal arts curriculum firmly rooted in the Jesuit tradition of education,
spirituality and service. To learn more, please visit

"like only leaders" must be a Canisius grad ;)


Ha, Canisius is just a place where people go if they can't go to Nichols!


As an alumnus, I have to say that I am extremely proud of these new additions. I think the new math and science building will help prepare students for college level labs, something I wish I had more of when I attended. The best part about this expansion is the restoration of the auditorium back into it's original form, a theatre. It really is a stunning part of the building, and I feel it was wasted by playing basketball and having phys ed in it. I can't wait till I get to see the new buildings first hand.


haha - ohhhhh really we're going to start that are we?


It seems to me like only leaders graduate from that place, unlike St Joe's.


Someone on the thread about the Elmwood/Utica condos mentioned today that if you pay for second rate architects you get second rate designs. Well Canisius must have gone top notch! This is a striking design that melds surprisingly well with the classic facades around it.
