Bourgade Catholic Office of Advancement
Bourgade Catholic High School - 50 Years and Still Soaring!
Bourgade Catholic's character is clearly illustrated through its students' committment to Learn, Lead, and Serve. This approach helps Bourgade Catholic become a more vibrant part of our community every day. To ensure that Bourgade Catholic's vision of education remains as holistic today as it was in 1962 when the school was founded, the school depends on contributions from members of our community. Bourgade Catholic's Office of Advancement is dedicated to building relationships that help market the school and augment its operating budget. The Advancement Office takes pride in helping shape generations of men and women who continually discover new ways to learn, lead, and serve in the Bourgade Catholic tradition.
Hillmann Center Renovation
On December 1st, Bishop Thomas Olmsted officiated the groundbreaking for the remodel of Bourgade Catholic High School’s Hillmann Center and the construction of a 19,873 square foot multi-purpose performance center. Hillmann Center was originally built to house the priests who served as administrators and faculty/staff at Bourgade Catholic. In the ensuing years, the Hillmann Center has served as a retreat house for the Diocese of Phoenix as well as an Engaged Encounter Weekend location for many Catholic couples.
In its new life, Hillmann Center will house Bourgade Catholic’s outstanding music program with classroom and practice spaces, instrument storage, an expanded Campus Ministry Office, and space for a warming kitchen on the first floor. Department offices, meeting rooms, a large board room, and the Advancement and Admissions offices will be located on the second floor.
The new multipurpose room will be attached to Hillmann Center on the east. This new space will include stadium style seating for 350 guests to enjoy lectures, liturgies, band, choir, and theatre performances. The seating will be retractable to provide open space for meetings, art shows, and community gatherings.
