What's New at Hartley
Since 1999, virtually every space on the Hartley campus has been rebuilt, renovated, or created anew. From the centerpiece Chapel that serves both literally and figuratively as the heart of our school, to the renovated Main Office, gymnasium, and cafeteria, the public areas of the school provide a warm and welcoming environment for visitors, parents and students.
Our academic facilities enhancements have a new Science wing, remodeled classrooms, expansive and renovated Library/Resource Center, and a dedicated Art wing demonstrate our commitment to strong purposeful educational spaces which support classroom technology and provide space for our growing enrollment.
The exterior spaces of the school include a new athletic stadium with new turf, enhanced practice areas, press box, concessions, and restrooms. The new North parking lot supports our student safety plan by providing safe, off-street parking.
As we move forward continuing to deliver the best quality Catholic education in Central Ohio, we look at what matters most: the safety of our student body, and the ability to create more opportunity for growth. This Vision campaign will enable us to do both while providing the means to utilize current facilities in more efficient and diverse ways. Our first goal is to expand the entrance to the Dick Geyer Gymnasium, creating a safe haven for our students before and after school in a student commons area. This project will also allow us to utilize existing rooms and facilities in a more efficient way.
Our second goal is to build an auxiliary gymnasium. Again, this will give us the opportunity to use our existing facilities more effectively and allow for greater opportunities for indoor expansion of our current facilities.
These two important enhancements not only provide additional space, but enable us to utilize existing space to its full capacity. Currently, some of our athletic teams practice until 9:30 pm; this would be eliminated allowing for all teams to end practices no later than 7pm. We would gain access to our Main Gym on Tuesdays by moving Bingo to the fieldhouse, thereby enabling us to host more feeder school events. Our Scholars reception, Ambassadors Program, and Evening of Excellence would utilize the student commons area to its full potential.
